RUSTENBURG - Another mobile classroom was set alight at Rekgonne Secondary School in Blydeville near Lichtenburg, the North West education department said on Thursday.
The mobile classroom used as an administration block was torched in the early hours of Monday.
"At the moment the cause of fire is still unknown. Materials that were lost in the fire include stationery, textbooks, teacher’s files, preparation books, school stamp, 2020 school applications, learners’ tasks, sports attire and cleaning materials," the department's spokesman Elias Malindi said.
The incident follows another mobile classroom being burnt down by unknown people at the same school on July 22.
Rekgonne started operating in January 2017 with 141 grade 8 learners and four mobile classrooms, one of which was used as a staffroom and storeroom. Extra mobile classrooms were delivered when Grade 9 was added in 2018.
