List of Schools Damaged By KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Floods
The floods in KwaZulu-Natal damaged hundreds of schools, which are being assessed. Authorities have stated that they will advise parents on the way forward as soon as they have more information.
Nkosinathi Ngcobo from the KZN Education Department stated that about 248 schools were affected by the floods.
Due to the extent of damages, some schools needed to close down until solutions are implemented. The extent of damages varies depending on location.
Those who were heavily affected will need to have mobile classrooms built to continue teaching and learning.
The floods did not only damage schools but also displaced many individuals from their homes. These people have been accommodated at schools while housing solutions are set in place.
During this long weekend, authorities are coming up with solutions for these individuals and pupils who will need to return to school next week Tuesday.
