Angie Motshekga, the Minister of Basic Education, has stated that this will be the case. However, rotational schedules will continue to exist.
Motshekga provided an update on the school’s preparation for the year 2022. Despite requests for schools to resume normal operations, Motshekga insists on sticking to the rotational schedule.
“In terms of education, the situation will remain the same,” she stated, “particularly rotational time-tabling, which was relevant when we finished schools in 2021.”
“The fact is that COVID-19 is still very much with us, and we need to keep working together to combat it.”
Motshekga has asked for patience as emotions rise over the placement of some Grade 1 and 8 learners in Gauteng.
She stated, “The department is aware that there are still learners who have not been placed in schools.”
“At this time, Gauteng is facing difficulties in this area, and we urge parents and guardians to work with district officials to resolve any issues.”
