A six-in-one building that work began on in 2012 has been left abandoned for seven years. The building, supposed to be used by Jubilee Secondary School as classrooms, now stands idle after it was left incomplete due to funding issues.

Given the increase in the number of eligible students, extra students have been selected to continue grade nine in various secondary schools in NCD.

However, the main issue faced by these schools is lack of space, and adequate infrastructure to cater for these extra students.

Michael Phasa, the Provincial Support Service Director, stated that with the increasing number of eligible students continuing to secondary education, there is a need for more infrastructure as well as teachers in all schools in the Nation’s Capital.

This abandoned building is what’s supposed to be a six-in-one classroom. Construction on this building began in 2012, but has since been abandoned. Work on the building foundation began in 2012, but since then, the building has been left incomplete.

Speaking to EMTV News, National Director of Provincial Support Service, Michael Phasa, says the school could have had this classroom by now to cater for the increasing number of students, if not for the unforseen circumstances.
