Newsletter from FEDSAS explaining the various options with regards to keeping pupils at home




Schools will re-open for grade 12 pupils on Monday, 8 June as instructed by the Minister of Education.

Please note that the school was ready to receive pupils today but this was vetoed by the Minister.

The procedure for returning to school is as follows: Only pupils on the Group 1 list are to arrive at school on Monday. Group 2 will return on Tuesday. Please look at the lists sent to you to check to which group you have been allocated. Ensure that you bring your cellphone to school for screening and registration purposes. If you do not have a cellphone there is an alternative method of screening and  registration in place. We look forward to seeing Group 1 on Monday. Take care and keep safe.
