The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education (DOE) is concerned about the increasing number of burglaries reported in schools around the province.
Criminals seem to be targeting schools for equipment such as computers, laptops and printers.
The latest school to fall victim to these break-ins is Insika Secondary in Sweetwaters. The school was broken into in the early hours of Thursday last week. Two laptops containing school information were stolen from a strongroom, as well as irons and library stands.
