The Education Department joined the Vooma Vaccination campaign in order to encourage more South Africans to get vaccinated and educate those who are still hesitant to take the jab. 


With the final matric exams set to get under way in the next two days, the Department of Basic Education has shed some light on what it has been doing to prepare.


The Department of Basic Education's Minister Angie Motshekga has said that parents must still pay school fees at fee-paying schools despite schools closing for extended periods of time due to outbreaks of Covid-19. 


Recently the TPN Credit Bureau conducted a survey which indicated that schools are facing challenges in collecting fees from parents. 


The Department of Basic Education is said to be on track as far as the release of matric results go. Matriculants should expect their results later this month as the 2021 academic year begins in March.


According to the calendar set out by the Department of Basic Education, school management teams and support staff are expected to return to schools today. 


Some teachers are now showing concern and are worried that even with the delayed reopening of schools, returning to schools still won't be safe for them. Teachers are due back at schools on 1 February with learners following on 15 February.


With the department nearing the end of this years Matric marking session, they are said to be ahead of schedule which further motivates there being no delay in the release of results.
