Back to school: Full-time classes to resume in all South African schools



This Monday in the South African classroom, things are mostly back to normal.

All kinds of schools are reintroducing full-time schooling.

According to the government’s new Covid-19 regulations, students are no longer required to maintain a safe distance from each other.
Last Monday, Cabinet put a stop to rotational learning.

Students will no longer be separated by one metre of social distance.

Angie Motshekga, the Minister of Basic Education, has urged all eligible teachers and students to acquire the Covid-19 vaccine.

Meanwhile, as at last week Monday, schools across the country reopened to full capacity.

According to the Basic Education Education Department, improved guidelines for preventing Covid-19 infections have been implemented.

Rotational learning and a one-metre social distancing distance have both been eliminated.

Minister Angie Motshekga detailed how the full-time return to school will take place, as well as what teachers may expect.

“What we agreed with the provinces is that they must do all it takes to keep the environment safe, to ensure that there are no diseases and that children are not overcrowded,” she added.

“Other precautions, for example, there are different entrance gates. Normally, we open one gate, but we’re saying open more than one gate to avoid crowding.”
