Limpopo delays the return of Grade Rs


The Limpopo Department of Education has taken a decision to delay the return of grade R learners to school.

On Saturday, the department issued a media statement postponing the return of the pupils.

MEC, Polly Boshielo has after consultation with the Minister of Basic Education, reviewed the reopening date of grade R learners in the province.

According to the regulations published in the government gazette of 29 June 2020, grade R learners were supposed to return to schools on Monday, 6 July 2020.

The Provincial Department of Education considered various aspects which have led to the new date for the return of grade R learners to be Wednesday, 29 July 2020.

This arrangement does not hinder schools that had already applied and granted to reopen for different grades as per the regulations gazetted and published by the Minister of Basic Education. These regulations allow both public and independent schools to apply for deviation.

“We are working in line with Minister Motshekga’s pronouncement that we will adjust the reopening phases based on the risk-adjusted strategy which is a considered attempt to balance our approach to school reopening taking into account all factors that affect the work we do,” said MEC Polly Boshielo
