With teachers having reopened on Monday, the Department of Basic Education said they are satisfied with the readiness of local schools in Tubatse.
Basic education’s deputy minister, Dr Makgabo Reginah Mhaule, and the Limpopo education MEC, Polly Boshielo, visited schools in Tubatse on Monday to assess their state of readiness . Among the schools visited included, Bogwasha, Marakabele, Batau, and Lehlabile primary schools.

“The oversight visits come as the sector moves closer towards welcoming pupils as part of the commencement of the 2021 academic calendar and with the sector having welcomed back SMTs and teachers.
