Mdudla Primary School was established in 1959 and today, the school has an enrolment of 561 learners, 20 educators, 2 non-teaching personnel (an Administration Clerk and a Security Guard), as well as 4 Food Handlers. The school has a total of 12 classrooms, an administration block, 8 pit toilets (3 for girls, 3 for boys and 2 for staff members).
The 12 classrooms and an enrolment of 561 pupils yields an average of 47 learners per classroom, the classrooms are overcrowded compared to the Department of Education’s recommendation of 30 learners per class. Because of the overcrowding, the classrooms are badly depreciated. Africa Foundation are actively fundraising to build a double classroom block, this will bring the average class down to 40 leaners per classroom.
