Notice to all parents and public schools kids, Here are the New dates for school reopening

Following consultation with the COVID 19 pandemic management team, educational organizations, and the general public, Angie Motshekga, the Minister of Basic Education, officially confirmed on February 6, 2022 that almost all public schools will continue to operate on a full-time basis and that rotary classes will be discontinued. This is the result of an investigation of the influence of the COVID 19 pandemic on rotating lessons, which have been in place since the epidemic began in 2020 and have continued since then.

All public schools will return on February 7th, 2022, with full enrolment. Despite the virus remaining on the grounds, pupils are no longer missing days between sessions, and life has returned to normal.

In comparison, the preceding two years saw schools unable to operate on a consistent basis due to a rise in coronavirus infections across the country. School resumes significantly earlier in 2022 than it did in the previous two years, a considerable change from the previous two years. Schools will resume on February 12th, 2022, for the start of the academic year 2022.

The educational calendar for the current academic year, which was issued earlier this year, is as follows: The start and end of school terms are decided by a variety of dates that vary by province. All public schools in the inland cluster, which includes the Free State, Limpopo, Gauteng, the Northwest, and Mpumalanga, will be closed for the duration of recess, which began on the 17th of March 2022 and will conclude on the 5th of April 2022.

According to school calendars for coastal cluster schools in KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape, the Eastern Cape, and the Northern Cape, operations began on the 17th of January 2022 and will conclude on the 25th of March 2022. The second semester of classes will commence on the 5th of April at all schools.

Please refer to the calendars supplied below for the remainder of the year's dates.
