Dear Parents

On Tuesday the 17th of March 2020, The Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa (ISASA) issued a memorandum to 3-Term independent schools (attached hereto). This instructed 3-Term independent schools to close in order to comply with our President’s directive. Furthermore, schools have been asked to move to online teaching platforms, until the 9th of April, in order to mitigate the loss of teaching time. This approach has been adopted by the majority of member schools.

Beaulieu Prep Newsletter 4 - 2020

From the Headmistress' Desk

Yesterday saw unprecedented action in our country: the mandatory closure of all the schools in South Africa in terms of the state of emergency declared by President Ramaphosa on Sunday.

The Kyalami Schools' Executive had been watching the world-wide spread of COVID-19 and suspected, when a pandemic was declared by the World Health Organisation, that drastic measures may be forthcoming. At that point, we asked our teachers to think about how we could continue to keep our children learning in the case of a school closure. Then last Friday, we asked them to develop remote learning programmes for three days and we gave them two weeks to do this. In the end, our teachers had just two afternoons to produce the work which we have provided to the children for the remainder of this week. We know that it's not perfect, but we know that the next batch will be even better. We haven't done this before and we are learning as we go. The teachers will be at school for the remainder of the week in order to collaborate on the programmes we will send home for your children for next week. Once the systems are in place and the programmes for the coming week have been finalised, the teachers will work off-campus to develop the remaining material.

Re: COVID-19 Communication following our President’s address (15 March 2020)

Dear Parents

On Sunday the 15th of March 2020, our President addressed the nation with far-reaching directives and measures that are hoped to mitigate against the spread of COVID-19 in South Africa. This letter will address only those directives that will directly impact our schools.

Closure of Schools

In terms of the National Disaster Management Act, 57 of 2002, the President has the power to declare all schools closed, this includes independent schools. As such, Tuesday the 17th of March 2020 will be our last contact school day until further notice. This means that all school activities are suspended, including but not limited to camps, tours, non-essential meetings, sports and cultural events, aftercare, PTF functions, parents’ evenings, music lessons and all extra cost activities, clubs and events. New dates for all postponed events will be communicated in due course.
