Motshekga monitors return of primary school learners at full capacity

Published on

Minister Angie Motshekga conducted a visit to Monde Primary School to monitor the return of primary school learners at full capacity for the first time since the extended break.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) issued a statement on Monday, 2 August 2021, stating that Minister Angie Motshekga would be monitoring the return of primary school learners on a full-time basis on Tuesday, 3 August 2021. Minster Motshekga was previously expected to conduct her visit to schools in Ekurhuleni on Monday, accompanied by the Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, which was cancelled and rescheduled for Tuesday instead.

The department confirmed that the minister would be conducting her visit to Monde Primary School, stating that the purpose of the visit was to monitor the return of all primary school learners (Grades R-7) at full capacity. The DBE also noted that the visit would be done in terms of the risk-adjusted differentiated strategy.

The department emphasised how the return of school learners would enable teachers and learners to recover the learning and teaching time that was lost due to the recent extended school break. The department further noted that this return came on the back of the sector’s very successful vaccination programme, whereby the DBE confirmed that more than 517 000 educational sector personnel had received their vaccinations.
