The Department of Basic Education has recently released the final version of the school calendar for 2022. The calendar gives more details on how the department will break down the 43 week-long school year between all schools in inland and coastal provinces.


With the final matric exams set to begin the next five days the department of health has announced that it will halt its on-site school vaccination rollout to avoid disrupting schooling.

 


A community in Gqeberha has taken it upon itself to revive and repurpose an abandoned school as part of its initiative to foster a positive youth environment. The aim is to also do away with rampant criminal activity in the area. 

 


The Department of Education will be employing teacher assistants again in November 2021 and you might be interested in earning an income but if you are a NSFAS student you unfortunately do not qualify for this post. Keep reading to find out what the requirements are to qualify for the teaching assistant post. 


The Basic Education Employment Initiative has invited the youth of South Africa to apply for the opportunity between the 27th of September and the 3rd of October 2021.


The Educators Union of South Africa is calling for teachers to protest for schools to be temporarily closed for the third wave. The department has insisted that schools will stay open, which some are not happy with.


With cases growing by over 10 000  every day and with Gauteng already exhausted by the third wave, will schools be closing again? The Congress of South African Students and other stakeholders have called for this to take place with other organisations, such as Equal Education, taking the opposite view.


Teachers have finally received some response to the many calls for their vaccinations to be priortised. However, no date has been set for when these vaccinations will take place.
