The re-opening of schools at uMgungundlovu District was all systems go
The KZN MEC for Finance, Ina Cronje who is also the Champion MEC for uMgungundlovu District, says it was all systems go at the schools re-opening in uMgungundlovu District on the 15th of January 2014.
MEC Cronje visited three schools in the district as part of the KZN Legislature School Functionality Monitoring Programme and said that teaching and learning commenced on the first hour of the first day, as all material had been delivered to schools already.
All MEC’s were out all over the province leading teams in their districts where they are deployed as champion MECs accompanied by members of parliament and senior government officials to oversee the smooth sailing of entry into the new term and to assess schools readiness for the new school year.
MEC Cronje visited Nkabini Primary, Zamelizwe Primary, and Sobantu High schools where she spent some time engaging with school management teams and school governing bodies.
“We have seen really well functioning schools and it was encouraging to see teaching and learning commencing on the very first hour of the school. We spent a lot of quality time at each school engaging school management teams and school governing bodies, really asking probing questions. The issue of text books, and stationary delivery seems to be a problem of the past. There are some infrastructure problems that we need to follow up on. But all in all our kids are off to a very good start” said Cronje.
