Three Taps To Service 1039 Learners At Fleurhof Primary School

Fleurhof Primary School

Fleurhof Primary School in Roodepoort, Johannesburg only has three taps to supply water to 1039 learners in the school.

On top of this, teachers are subjected to the use of bucket toilets as water pressure is not strong enough to fill the toilet’s cisterns.

The school is making use of a single Jojo tank to service the water needs of learners and staff.

On numerous occasions Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, has said that all schools in the province have proper running water and flush toilets.

Temporary School Structure

Today’s example proves the MEC wrong.

The MEC must ensure that Fleurhof Primary School has proper running water and flush toilets.

It is deeply concerning that young learners and their teachers are subjected to such inhumane conditions.

The DA will pose questions to the MEC to ascertain when exactly the brick and mortar construction of the school will commence, as the temporary school structure was built two years ago.
