This is a subsection of the Education Section. Council runs twenty-nine (29) schools which are mostly in the western suburbs of the city. The Section is managed by a Principal Education Officer who is assisted by an Education Officer. Council provides support staff in each and every school whilst the government provides the teaching staff. Currently the city has a backlog of about sixteen (16) new schools which are needed to meet the needs of the growing population in the city. The newer suburbs of Emganwini, Pumula South and Cowdray Park are the most affected areas where there is a great need for new schools.
