Cape Town - The number of children who are attending an “occupied” mobile school in Dunoon is increasing each day, residents say.
The classrooms of the vacant school were occupied earlier this month by a group of parents and other residents who say the two primary schools in the area couldn’t accommodate them, because they are full.
The classrooms were used by Sophakama Primary until that school was moved to permanent structures several months ago.
Two weeks ago residents said there were 300 children in the area that were unplaced.
Last Monday, officials from the Western Cape Education Department visited the site to determine which children had to be placed.
