KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Sipho Hlomuka this morning took part in the Harry Gwala District Schools functionality programme, where he was joined by the Mayor of the District, Cllr Nxumalo, and Members of the Provincial Legislature which were led by Hon Hlobisile Dlamini.
The aim of the programme is to assess the state of readiness of schools to commence with teaching following the opening of schools across the province.
The delegation visited the Nkumba and Dlangala Primary in the Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma municipality.
During the visit, the delegation interacted with the management of both schools on some of the challenges they are faced with and some of the interventions that can be made to resolve them.
These issues ranged from provision of water, structural damage to schools, pass rates, tools of trade for teachers, and the provision of PPE for teachers and leaners.
