A statement released by DBE:

Basic Education Minister Mrs Angie Motshekga will hold a briefing to provide an update on the basic education sector's response to the impact of Covid-19 on schooling.

She'll also be addressing other matters affecting the basic education sector in the context of Covid-19.

A few weeks ago, the department announced that from 26 July, all primary school learners will be returning to school full-time. This will definitely be something we're all eager to hear about whether it will still happen or not.

Another subject we might hear about is that of teacher vaccines. With 300 000 doses expected to arrive in the country for teachers today, we are yet to hear when teachers, as well as school support staff, will start receiving their vaccines.
