Last year St Matthews high school faced quiet a few problems/troubling reports one of which was the water crisis, which saw many of our students being hospitalized. The cause of the hospitalization was suspected to be from drinking contaminated water.

Amatole Water then offered to assist the Amahlathi Municipality with handling the issue with our water, in the process Amathole Water decided to install a remote office on the school grounds as this would offer faster response when then having to call and wait for them to get to the school.

The office is equip t with a LAB so that they can test the water on site regularly, the is a Site Manager by the name Nomfundo Kekezwa available from 8:00am till 4:00pm. The school was able to offer her a room in of the houses that our teacher reside in so that in a way she is closely available if needed.
