The Albert Moroka Secondary School in Thaba Nchu, Free State, will be rebuilt by the end of March this year.
According to the MEC of the Free State Department of Education, the hall of the school will be in good condition by the time the 2022 matriculants have to write exams. If the rebuilding will be delayed, it will only be by a week or two.
This follows after a hailstorm hit the school during December last year and damaged the school’s hall. He stated it would be fair for 2022 matrics to write their exams in the School’s hall, as the school is one of the top-performing schools in the province. Makgoe explains that the department does not have control over the fact that the academic year will be disrupted or not, due to the pandemic.
“Our strategy at the moment is to make sure the learners get as much education as possible, also as quickly as possible. The strategy is to make sure that if there is another Covid wave, we are far ahead in the syllabus. If schools have to close again, we will have to make use of technology.”
As part of the Free State Department of Education's new academic calendar year in 2022 and its school monitoring programme, Makgoe visited the Credence Primary School and the Lereko Secondary School in Bloemfontein, as well as the Albert Moroka Secondary School in Thaba Nchu.
