MEC Lesufi urges parents to take precaution and prioritise children safety during the National Taxi Strike

The Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi urges parents to take precaution and prioritise their children safety on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, due to the National Taxi Strike.

It is important noting that this activity happens during the critical examination period and as such all learners will not be disadvantaged because of an activity which is beyond their control. All Chief Invigilators will assist and afford all Grade 12 learners who might arrive late an opportunity to write their final exam accordingly. The department will invoke necessary prescripts for all those learners who might not make it to the exam. Chief Invigilators will also use their discretion, to accommodate learners to write at alternative centres.

The Department has communicated to all school principals to give inner Grades children who might not make it to school on Wednesday another opportunity to write any assessment that might be missed. The department also appeals to parents to make necessary alternative transport arrangements especially for the Grade 12 learners.

MEC Lesufi said “It is concerning and unfortunate that, such activities continue to be organised during this critical period of examinations in the education environment, actually such activities subvert the Country. All the Grade 12 learners should be preoccupied by preparations and excelling in their work than, any other activity that is derailing their efforts and focus thereof”.
