Almost 1 500 schools across the <state w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Western Cape opened their doors for the first day of the new academic term on Wednesday.

A Langa school was hit hard as vandals destroyed most of the schools fixtures and fittings.

Classes there will only begin in a few days time.

However, <place w:st="on">Hanover Park’s Parkfields Primary School caretaker Moegamat Galant said there was only one vandalism incident at their institution.

"It wasn’t so bad as previous years. There was nothing happening at this school. The only thing is just a piece of our fence was stolen, but they caught the guy and he was arrested for that," said Galant.
