Durban - Pupils and teachers at Wentworth's Austerville Primary School arrived at the school on Monday to find they had been locked out.
Concerned parents and community members have vowed to keep the school closed until the KZN Department of Education addresses urgent matters of mismanagement at the school.
These include toilets that have been labelled a health hazard to pupils and a "crisis" with the school's financial management.
Parents issued a vote of no confidence on the School Governing Body (SGB) and they’ve vowed to keep children away from school until Wednesday, in a bid to force education officials to deal with their concerns.
The parents had attended an emergency meeting called by the school on Saturday. They were briefed on the problems the school is facing and later issued their vote of no confidence against the SGB.
