BOROLONG: When welcoming the minister and guests to the school, the head teacher, Catherine Tshokolo revealed that the primary school has 1,005 pupils. This is despite the fact that primary schools are only allowed to cater for 800 learners.

Tshokolo said the high number of learners has proven to be a challenge, and seven classes are currently taught under trees. "All classrooms in the school are occupied but with the overcrowding that the school is experiencing, they cannot cater for all of them, " she said.

A visibly worried Venson-Moitoi interjected to ask as to why the school has so many enrolled learners. "Heela ele gore ke eng o amogetse bana ba kanakana, ga o itse palo e sekolo se tshwanetseng goe tsaya (Heela, why have you enrolled so many pupils. Don't you know the number of pupils you are supposed to enroll)?" she asked.
