JOHANNESBURG - When the lockdown started 100 days ago, classrooms were cleared and books and stationery were packed away.
It was a difficult time for many teachers, who had to be without the children they care for as their own.
Classes are scheduled to resume for some grades next week.
Grade 1 teacher Mandy Bosma welcomed back her pupils for an orientation day.
Bosma misses the children, and the children miss her but, with the help of parents, they've stayed in touch with videos.
COVID-19 will change the way learning takes place but it won't stop the thousands of dedicated teachers in South Africa.
They’ll just find new ways to nurture and guide young minds.
