Basic Education Minister is also confident, without a doubt that the class of 2020 will be able to graduate as planned this year.
Motshekga said the schools have enough space for social distancing with only the grade 12 in attendance as well as when the grades 7's return next week. She is, however, worried about the return of the rest of the grades.
"Next week I don't expect much drama, the biggest problem we are anticipating is going to come after the 24th when we receive more grades and start work on a differentiated time table. So they are going to rotate Monday, Wednesday, Friday. So Monday they teach and Tuesday kids have to do lots of work on their own, Wednesday they report back. Some are going to have weekly rotation. So that's where I think we are going to start beginning to feel the stress of the Coronavirus. For now there is space, there isn't much really, even next week there is space. The problems are going to come after the 24th" said Motshekga.
