What South Africa’s teachers brought to the virtual classroom during Covid-19 (The Citizen, 23 Feb, 2021)
It is appropriate to congratulate the Department (GDE), teachers, parents and learners who worked tirelessly during 2020 to produce a pass rate of 76,2% nationally and 83.8% in Gauteng.
Our teachers must be singled out for the sterling effort they made. All teachers from grade 1 to grade 12 ultimately contribute to the success of the matric year. All teachers had to cope with the challenges brought about COVID-19: loss of teaching time, on-line learning, rotational school attendance, concerns about health and safety and more.
The matric teachers of 2020 are worthy of additional credit. Over and above the normal challenges of a matric year, the matric teachers were under additional pressure to complete the syllabus, working in an environment of uncertainty and disruptions.
Congratulations and thank you for going the extra mile.
