A SCHOOL in Limpopo has experienced a series of burglaries that have the authorities worried.

Kgabo High School in GaMokgokong in Moletji had its windows broken on Sunday night and a computer stolen on Tuesday night.

The school has no security guards and relies on Bearco, a security company hired to monitor it at night.

Magdalene Ika, chairperson of the school's governing body, told Sowetan yesterday that they were concerned about the inadequate security measures at the school.

She said they wanted the department of education to provide security.

Ika said the criminals returned on Tuesday night to steal a computer and vandalise the water tank.

They also allegedly broke water taps. The school has been without water following the incident.

Department spokesperson Ndo Mangala said though the department was not responsible for security, they would urgently send a team to assess the school's needs.
