THERE was much sadness at the start of the school year at Indlovana Primary as pupils and staff expressed their sorrow at the death of Siyamthanda Shange, who drowned in Lake Merthley on Friday 24 December, 2016.
He was laid to rest on 31 December at his home in Ebovini.

Siyamthanda and a friend were playing in a boat on Lake Merthley when he fell into the water. A visitor to the lake did his best to rescue him, but it was too late.

His Grade 3 class teacher described him as being one of the most dedicated in her class, and despite being diagnosed as a diabetic last year, persevered with his studies with the help of the staff who took care of him.
Siyamthanda’s family thanked the school and Greytown Hospital for taking care of him while he was sick.

A memorial service will be held at the school on Thursday 26 January.

Indlovana classes started as scheduled last week, with teachers well prepared and ready to teach the enrollment of 1 023 pupils.
