Parents shut down U’hage school

Tremaine van Aardt

PROTESTING parents forced pupils and teachers to vacate a Uitenhage school yesterday after the Eastern Cape Education Department failed to hire seven new teachers.

The parents vowed to return today if the department failed to find the teachers it promised to employ.

After the pupils and teachers left the John Walton Senior Secondary School, parents locked the gates.

Even though school was out early, matric pupils left singing: “Ons soek skool [We want school].”
