The Western Cape Education Department has once again called on community members to help protect the province’s schools by reporting theft and vandalism.
The MEC for Education, Debbie Schäfer says 41 incidents of theft and vandalism were reported at 34 Western Cape schools during the past Christmas season.
She says although there has been a decrease in the number of incidents, offenders need to be apprehended and brought to book.
Schäfer says theft and vandalism to school property deprives students of their right to education.
