The Department of Basic Education has shown concern about the effects the pandemic has had on the teaching and learning taking place. Learners have not been reading as much as they need to and now, the Department is set to have plans in place to aid this.
Young, qualified, talented and enterprising applicants from African countries and the African Diaspora are invited to apply to join Masters or PhD degree programmes at any of the following four PAU institutes listed below.
Schools in the Eastern Cape were given permission to return however they have chosen to postpone the return of Grades R, 6 and 11. This postponement is due to the increase in COVID-19 cases at schools.
Learners will return to school tomorrow with 96,7% of all schools ready to accept the pupils and apply by all Covid-19 safety measures. The Minister of Basic Education has updated the country on the reopening which will see 13% of learners return on Monday (Grade 12 and Grade 7) and gave reassurance that the provinces are ready to receive them.
