Cape Town - Dunoon residents who have occupied a vacant mobile school in a bid to ensure an education for unplaced children in their area say they - and their children - will not be moved.
Education officials visited the site on Monday where they recorded the names of 75 children in Grades R to 7 and found that 66 had never been registered at a Western Cape school.
The site was occupied two weeks ago and classes, taught by volunteer teachers, started soon after. Parents have claimed that the two primary schools in Dunoon are full and so can’t accommodate the children.
They protested during the visit by officials on Monday. Some parents said they were unhappy because the matter was taking too long to be resolved.
“I am not happy that the department is here because they didn’t come with a solution,” said parent Nokubonga Tukani.
