MANZINI - Despite the two-day protest action that had been called by the Swaziland National Association of Teac-hers (SNAT), some members decided to go against the stri-ke and have classes as usual.
For the past two days, teachers took to the streets and marched to the Ministry of Public Service to deliver a petition on Wednesday.
Yesterday they were in the streets of Manzini for the second day of the strike action.
Lamawandla High School
"Classes are ongoing as usual. As Deputy Principal, I do not have the right to turn back pupils when they come to school. As teachers we have to make sure they have lessons everyday even if other teachers are not present. Some are taking part in the protest, but that will not affect classes," Philile Dlamini, the Deputy Principal of the school said.
Mankayane High School
"The strike has not affected anything.
Everything is normal as all teachers are present," the secretary of the school, Nothando Dube said.
Ngwane Park High School
"Some of our teachers are not members of SNAT and they are in class. However, those who are members are probably taking part in the protest. The school also has student teachers who are conduct-ing lessons. All in all, we have not been affected by the protest," the school’s Principal Eric Zwane said.
St Paul’s High School
"We are having classes and so far there have been no changes. Right now, pupils are doing different activities in preparation of the event to be attended by the Deputy Prime Minister," Jabulile Simelane said
St Theresa’s High School
"We had classes as usual from Wednesday when the protest started, but had to release pupils at noon because of the strike," the school’s Principal, Albert Sihlongonyane said.
Salesian High School
"It is business as usual and classes are ongoing including yesterday (Wednesday). The strike has not affected us," the school’s Deputy Principal, Lindiwe Zwane said.
Ninemanga! Teachers were not blocking the gate to the regional education offices(REO). The gate was locked by the police. Your report is so biased, you make me sick.
