What exactly are the new school holiday dates? We'll know soon


With schools closed for an extended period now and the 2020 school holiday calendar amended to accommodate the changes, parents are keen to know what the new dates are.

We're on top of it, and will share the updated holiday calendar as soon as the Department of Basic Education (DBE) lets us know. 

The official response to our query was answered with "In terms of what the President said there has to be a revision to the school calendar. We are in the process of reviewing it and possibly next week it will be made available publicly."

Elijah Mhlanga, Chief Director: Media Liaison – National and Provincial Communication at the DBE, assured us that they'll inform the public as soon as possible.
