38 W Cape schools vandalised
At least 38 Western Cape schools were vandalised over the festive season.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Education Department has expressed concern following several reports of vandalism at schools over the holidays.
In total 38 cases were reported, with 34 of these minor and at least four significant.
The worst affected school was Joe Slovo Secondary in Khayelitsha.
Education MEC Donald Grant says, "The vandals have caused major damage not only to science laboratories but also to several classrooms. They pulled out electrical cables, removed overheard projectors and taps."
Schools reopened on Wednesday across the country.
