Tomorrow, Tuesday, 22 November 2022, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng Shadow MEC for Education, Khume Ramulifho MPL, will conduct an oversight inspection at Randvaal Primary School.

The purpose of the oversight inspection is to assess the state of overcrowding and the environment in which learning, and teaching is taking place at this school.

The DA has received numerous complaints about learners being taught in massively overcrowded classrooms which is not a conducive environment for delivering quality education.

Overcrowding in classrooms is a serious challenge in our schools, yet the Gauteng Department of Education is constantly failing to prioritise the building of new schools, as a result, learners and teachers continue to suffer due to poor infrastructure.

The DA will engage with the school management and the School Governing Body (SGB) to ascertain the impact of the overcrowding in classrooms.

Details of the oversight inspections are as follows:

Date: 22 November 2022

Time: 10:00 to 11:00 am

Venue: 1, Cnr Witkruisarend & Blousysie Streets, Daleside, Randvaal, Johannesburg
