May | Issue 13

We trust that everyone is doing well. We all wondered when the lockdown would be over. There is some gradual progress and we trust that it will soon become even easier for all of us, so that we may move closer to a normal lifestyle again.

We received good news this week when the Minister of Education announced that the Gr 7's can return to school on the 1st of June. Unfortunately, she did not disclose how the other grades would return. The plan is that the other grades will also gradually return to school. Once we have more information, we will communicate it through to you.

We, as the Management Team, decided to give our learners from Gr 1 to 10 (and parents) a well deserved break from 25 to 29 May. There will be no work/activities for next week. Although it is called a holiday, you will unfortunately not be able to travel or go to the beach. It is going to give our learners, parents (who have worked just as hard) and the teachers a chance to relax. We will resume all schoolwork on the 1st of June, where we will complete the second terms work before starting with the third terms work.

At this stage we have not yet received planning from the Department of Education on assessments, tests and exams. The Department of Education is apparently busy working on the revised plans. Hopefully it will be available soon.

The teachers are not going to have a complete break as they will be busy with planning and preparation for the return of the Gr 7’s to school. The rest of the grades will continue with distance learning after the holiday.

We trust that you will all appreciate the good news.
