After heavy rain and flooding plagued parts of KwaZulu-Natal this weekend, the education department is concerned about the safety of teachers and learners in the province. 

 


Learner's attendance in KwaZulu-Natal has picked up over the past few days after two weeks of uncertainty brought upon by torrential rain and flooding in parts of the province.

 


The last few weeks have been extremely difficult for millions of South Africans as floods ravaged parts of KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape, while fires in the Western Cape burned down hundreds of homes.

 


The devastating impact of the flood is not yet known as many learners in KwaZulu-Natal are being prevented from learning while damage to critical infrastructure is still being assessed.

 


Unforeseen circumstances can have a major impact on the ability of individuals to meet their basic needs as the environment around them has changed.

 


Torrential rain and flooding in KwaZulu-Natal have caused havoc in the province with more than 300 causalities and thousands left destitute.


After affected schools in KwaZulu-Natal were closed this week, many learners will now not have access to food that is provided at schools through the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP).


Parts of KwaZulu-Natal have been devastated by extreme weather and flooding which has left more than 60 people dead and countless others destitute.


In the third quarter of 2021, the expanded unemployment rate in KwaZulu Natal (KZN) stood at 48,6%. This means that almost all of the people in KZN were unemployed.


The July unrest in parts Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng has had a devastating impact on the Country. More than 300 lives were lost during the unrest while many people were left without work.


Schools in Kwa-Zula Natal have seen an increase in the number of Covid-19 infections among teachers, support staff and students. The province has recorded more than 1100 reported cases in 350 schools in the past 3 weeks.
