Cape Town – An urgent interdict to halt the closure of 18 schools in the Western Cape was granted on Friday.

Western Cape High Court Judge Siraj Desai said reasons for the decision would be given later.

The schools, their governing bodies and the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union brought the urgent application against provincial education MEC Donald Grant and Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga to prevent the schools being shut down on December 31.

The applicants maintained the planned closures were unlawful and unconstitutional.

Grant maintained low enrolment numbers, multi-grade classes, or a decline in pupil numbers, were lawful reasons for his decision. – Sapa
