honestly homeschooling, at this point what will kids learn about?

sorry their expensive private schools need to close, but they are better off becoming a office park.

My eldest in Gr9 has been back for a week now. From Monday it was supposed to be every other day. Wonder if that will change now.

Many of those are playing by a different set of rules

That basically doesn't say much, just that next week will only be 3 grades, and then phasing in the next lot? What exactly that will really achieve who knows.

Yeah, they gave everyone tomorrow to beg and plead with their bosses about how shyte is more complicated thanks to the DBE... at least they can do it in person now.

Private, and some semi-private schools are basically doing what they want (and honestly not in a bad way) and telling the DBE to get bent.

My private school has decided to keep the online until 4th term, apparently 90% of the parents want it. There are only 140 kids in the school, sometimes democracy sucks.

My kids have a choice. They can do lessons online or in the classroom. The eldest does have to go in for tests and assessments.

That's what you get when a politician, who gets served whilst living of taxpayer money, makes choices on behalf of citizens.

I've got one that wants to go and one that wants to stay home. Bit of a pain.

Western cape is also doing their own thing. Hopefully in this case as well.

Both kids are suppose to go back next week but waiting to see how the school reacts to this release.
The younger one is at an ECD so we are waiting on a different announcement tomorrow.

Ex Model C type setup? (those are what I reference by saying semi-private... as in the have Governing body teachers and such like things)
Mine also TB, public. But they are special needs and already small classes ( <10), so it's just basic spacing and sanitizing needed to continue as normal, no special changes or class reshuffling.

Our 10 year old has been back since last week. Half the grade attends Monday and Wednesday while the other half attends Tuesdays and Thursday.

On fridays the school gets sanitised.

She does her work in class that needs to be done and then gets work to do at home on the days she doesn't have to attend.

Since I prefer to not let my wife deal with her, at least I get two days where I can concentrate 100% on my work and don't have to run around trying to help her.

I have no idea when our 13 year old is going back. In fact the school stopped uploading work almost a month ago so right now I'm just making her do maths until she is blue in the face. It's either that or I let her to her own devices which in variably would end with her walking around the house doing Tiktok dances and singing.
