Students in East London Fear School Might Fall On Them

By Nombulelo Damba-Hendrik

A primary school in East London is on the brink of collapse - literally

Students at Ntsasa Primary School in Phumlani in East London fear that their school might fall on them while in class.

The school is built out of ceiling board, planks and zinc sheets. Windows are broken. Doors have no handles. The school has no fence. The foundations are shifting, weakening the walls.

On Monday, teachers said two students were taken to a local clinics after they were cut by glass from the broken windows.
