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