THE uMshwathi Mayor, Siphindile Mbhele, has a positive vision to improve the matric results of the schools in her area and put into action the start of her campaign on 10th January.
The mayor held a meeting with the Department of Education school inspectors, led by Mr Mvubu.

The mayor said: “The purpose of the meeting is to work together to improve the quality of education in uMshwathi. I see the need to plan as early as the beginning of the year.
“We also wish to work with the Department of Education to deal with all the challenges that exist in our schools. We understand that most of the schooling processes are not our mandate as the municipality, but as part of the community, we can do a lot to improve matric results”

Some of the challenges that were raised at the meeting were the prevalence of social ills such as HIV/Aids, the high level of drug use, small and non-viable schools, which were affected by the PPN resulted in work overload as teachers have to provide all services and the stresses of completing the curriculum in time and some parents too are reluctant to support their children.

On 12 January Mbhele and uMshwathi leadership. continued with the back-to-school campaign programme.
They met with members of the KZN Legislature, led by Mr Z. Mlaba, the uMgungundlovu District Department of Education team, led by Mr Mabinza; uMgungundlovu District Municipality, led by the Mayor Mrs. T. Maphumulo, the Department of Public Works, led by Ms. C. Buthelezi and other stakeholders.
The group visited Trust Feed Primary in Ward 9 under the leadership of councillor E.B. Mbongwe and Albert Falls Primary in Ward 1, which falls under Councillor P. Dlamini.

Challenges raised in these meetings and schools will be discussed at a meeting of joint stakeholders to ensure that the quality of education will not be handicapped in any way. - Sibusiso Mkhithi.
