Johannesburg – The Gauteng Department of Education will not repair the Ekurhuleni school that was torched twice in one week by angry community members.
Barcelona Primary School in Etwatwa, Ekurhuleni, went up in flames again on Thursday evening. The school’s administration block and several grade R classes were gutted by the first fire set alight on Tuesday evening.
The Department said it received reports that on Tuesday night, the school’s administration block and Grade R classes were deliberately burned by community members who were disgruntled by infrastructure issues at the school.
As a result, learning and teaching at the school had been halted since Monday.
