I have been asking myself questions regarding Grade 7 learners going back to school, are teachers ready to welcome the learners or even teach, what are the ways that will be used for teaching, will learners share text books, can their safety be quarantined, Panyaza Lesufi said that certain areas will be closed at school like soccer fields but what assurance is there for soccer in townships is one sport that is so loved and what worries me is how the question of safety, text books and other used materials that are used at schools shared especially in townships, one someone said why is the parliament not opened but learners must go back to schools and the most disturbing question is, is it only teachers that will be on PPE if yes then what about these learners and when they can’t keep a distance from each other when playing, who will be keeping an eye on them all day not to come close to each.
