THE RESTRUCTURING OF NYUKANI EDUCATION CENTRE (NEC)
- The board of NEC Giyani resolved to reorganise, restructure and rationalize the school due to the following developments
- Low school enrolment relative to the school’s infrastructure which was originally designed for a maximum
enrolment of 1440 learners.
- High staff headcount relative to the school’s current enrolment of around 700 learners.
- Some parents who either pay fees late, renege on settlement arrangements or simply do not pay fees at
- The implications of the board’s decision to reorganise, restructure and rationalize NEC Giyani are three-fold:
- Notices will be given to all the parents with a poor fee payment track record to remove their children from NEC Giyani for the year of 2020.
- Redesign a smaller sustainable school in line with the lower enrolment numbers which are almost 50% of the original infrastructure design.
- Staff retrenchments will unfortunately result from the rationalization of the school’s headcount.
- The board of NEC Giyani appreciates the difficulties and inconvenience the decision to reorganise, restructure and rationalize NEC Giyani will cause to its multiple stakeholders, including parents, staff (teachers, administration and support), learners and the community at large. Be rest assured that NEC Giyani is a responsible corporate citizen, and undertakes to conduct the process of reorganizing, restructuring and rationalizing the school with utmost fairness and humanness.
- Once more, the decision to reorganise, restructure and rationalize NEC Giyani into a smaller school in line with the lower enrolment numbers has been taken to ensure the school’s sustainability. However, the founders of NEC Giyani remain committed to the vision to provide low-cost, high-quality education in rural areas.
