As schools are set to reopen after the winter break, the developments regarding the vaccination of the education sector show that a small percentage of teachers are still hesitant to receive the jab. 


The teacher vaccination rollout has been completed with Gauteng boasting a 92% vaccination rate for it's school sector. The department aimed to initially vaccinate over 580 000 nationally.


139 schools have been vandalised in Kwazulu-Natal as a result of the violent outbreaks and looting activities in the province. Schools reopen in 4 days, will the province be moving along normally? Keep reading to find out.


Teacher vaccinations concluded just last week with hundreds of thousands got vaccinated. The rollout is said to have gone down better than expected.


More than 50 schools have been damaged, torched and looted during the unrest that has gripped KwaZulu-Natal. Unrest continues in the province while members of the community embark on clean up missions.


After the previous deadline was extended, today marks the last day for teachers and school staff to get the vaccinations. What about those who couldn't get vaccinated though? Keep reading to find out.


Thousands of teachers were not able to get vaccinated during the education sector's vaccine rollout. Testing positive for Covid was only one of the reasons why this happened. 


The education sector has seen some bumps here and there with it's vaccination rollout but Minister Motshekga has said that there won't be a shortage of doses for the sector. Their goal is to vaccinate 583 000 people by 8 July.


The Minister of Basic Education (DBE) Angie Motshekga shares her frustrations as the Covid-19 pandemic threatens to close-down school continuity. Motshekga spoke on her provincial monitoring visits for vaccine-rollout programme at schools aimed to vaccinate teachers countrywide.


A week into the vaccine rollout for the education sector, almost 250 000 have already been vaccinated. This rollout is not only for teachers but those who work in school environments as well.


The day has finally arrived. Following the President's level 4 announcement, all schools will be closed from today for an early start to the July holidays. 


Government has said that even with the new regulations, they have not changed their plans for schools. Initially, 26 July would have seen all primary school learners return to school full-time.


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.


Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, has said that schools will not be closing while the country experiences a third wave. This has not been responded to well with some calling for schools to be closed immediately.


Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, will take the podium this weekend to speak on her department's response to Covidd-19. With the country now experiencing the third wave, Motshekga will then give updates about what will happen in schools.


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.


Even though the country is now seeing a rise in infections with Gauteng recording thousands of new cases daily, the Education Department has said that schools will still be opening with full capacity. The Gauteng Education Department also gave some insight into what would happen should a positive case be found.
