Rubbish Continues Piling up at Walmer Schools
Mountains of rubbish continue to pile up at two Walmer Township
schools. Walmer Lower Primary and Walmer High School have had piles of
rubbish on their school premises since August last year. There are
hundreds of black bags involved.

Walmer High School Rubbish - Bobby StevensonI personally visited
these schools after receiving complaints from the
local community. I was horrified at what I saw, particularly at Walmer
Lower Primary. This state of affairs is totally unacceptable and would
never be tolerated at schools across the road.

Why must township schools receive third class treatment?  No
caring society can tolerate this kind of affair.

I have written to the MEC for Education, Mahlubandile Qwase, requesting
his intervention as this problem has been ongoing for a year. The
co-operative operating in the township declines to remove the rubbish
as they are not paid to do so by the municipality. The Department of
Education must intervene and ensure that the municipality or its agents
are paid to do this job.

Not only is this pile of rubbish a health hazard which can encourage
rats but it also sends out the totally wrong message to learners that
nobody cares for them or their environment. We need to encourage a
climate of excellence in our schools and when public services such as
these are neglected it just highlights an “I-don’t-care-a-damn”

I will monitor the situation and ensure that action is taken.
