VAAL TRIANGLE - The Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, has confirmed that pupils will return to school next Monday, on June 8. The minister also apologised to the South African public after days of confusion about the reopening of schools. Motshekga stressed that any further delay to the school year would pose a serious threat to the academic year. She also said that continued postponement of continuing with the school year would impact negatively on poor pupils, especially, as they would be expected to write the same exam with everyone else. This means that next Monday, June 8, all Grade 7 and 12 pupils are expected back to school.
