Schools returned to in-person teaching on 26 July 2021, but the worries about Covid-19 remain even though thousands of teaching staff have already been vaccinated.
ISASA Executive Director, Lebogang Montjane, was interviewed on the readiness of independent schools for a return to in-person teaching and how schools performed during the closure period. Lebogang indicated that as soon as schools were closed, ISASA members moved to remote teaching and learning. Generally, no teaching time was lost and only the venue for learning changed – from a physical classroom to a virtual classroom.
He confirmed that almost all ISASA members would resume in-person teaching, although some may elect to continue with remote instruction for the time being.
