PARENTS on Monday morning prevented pupils and teachers from continuing with lessons at Kgomotso High School in Pampierstad until the Northern Cape Department of Education delivers on its promise to provide mobile classrooms.

No teaching and learning is expected to take place as the pupils remain in the school hall under supervision.

The mobile classrooms were apparently expected to arrive on Sunday after concerns were raised on several occasions regarding overcrowding at the school.

It is reported that the school currently has over 100 pupils above its capacity this year.

Parents have raised concerns that some pupils are falling behind with the syllabus due to the rotational school schedule.

It is reported that it is mostly the Grade 10 pupils who are affected.

This is a developing story.
