- Society · Incidents

SALDANHA – A much loved Grade 1 teacher of Mid­del­pos Pri­mary died after contractin­g Covid-19 and de­vel­op­ing se­ri­ous com­pli­ca­tions.

Mzwandile Six­holo, the school’s prin­ci­pal, told

on Tues­day the death of Funeka Kolisi (54) was a shock and a great loss for the school, as the learn­ers were very fond of her.

He said she was a “very kind and lov­ing per­son, a friend and a par­ent to the chil­dren.”

The school is grate­ful for the many con­do­lence mes­sages sent by com­mu­nity mem­bers and par­ents, Six­holo said.

“Please keep Ms Kolisi’s fam­ily in your thoughts and prayers at this dif­fi­cult time,” he said.

The prin­ci­pal also told Wes­lan­der a spe­cial memo­rial ser­vice for the teacher would be held at the school on Wed­nes­day (12 Au­gust).

“Many peo­ple wanted to at­tend the ser­vice, but un­for­tu­nately, due to Covid-19, we could al­low only 50 peo­ple.”
