Hoërskool Driehoek, the high school in Vanderbijlpark, continues to restore its premises after the tragedy occurred earlier this month. The building was partially declared safe for studying so pupils are expected to start classes on Monday.

According to the Gauteng Education Department, the resumption of work will proceed slowly as the reintegration efforts for learners are made. In relation to this plan, tents were raised on the school grounds to temporarily accommodate young residents.

On February 1, a concrete slab that was connecting two blocks of Hoërskool Driehoek, crashed, resulting in three deaths among the pupils. 23 other learners were injured, one of them — Marnus Nagel — later succumbed to his traumas in a local hospital.

The memorial process over the deceased will be held on Monday, Education spokesperson Steve Mabona said. As he states, the mournful event starts at 3 pm.
