We’re on strike – 9 days to go

There is a national public service strike effecting 750,000 people in South
Africa today. This includes schools, hospitals and airports. They are demanding
a 12% pay increase and it happens to include our favourite school Vuyani Primary
School. This creates an interesting moral dilemma for teachers and headmasters
in particular. The pupils need to go to school but the teachers aren’t allowed
to teach them. We’ve been assured by the headmaster that this won’t effect our
building week…..fortunately the strike doesn’t effect builders.
