Top PE soccer school stripped bare by thieves - GroundUp

Police fail to make any arrests despite numerous thefts and break-ins

Vandals in Eastern Cape have stripped bare a high school that is one of the province's top sporting achievers. The school buildings are standing empty and shapeless after its windows and doors were stolen.

Ncedo High School in Port Elizabeth won the 2016 Eastern Cape Under 19 Kay Motsepe schools soccer cup final. For its efforts, the school pocketed a cash prize of R100,000 and in October the school will be travelling to Gauteng to represent the province in the national finals. Its 64% matric pass rate is also considerably higher than the provincial pass rate of 57%. There are 1,010 pupils and 28 teachers.

Situated at the heart of Motherwell in NU 10, the school has no perimeter fence, nor signs after they were stolen. Community members, including their cattle and goats roam freely at any time with little regard for students in classrooms.
