Are we ready for opening schools?

I have been asking myself questions regarding Grade 7 learners going back to school, are teachers ready to welcome the learners or even teach, what are the ways that will be used for teaching, will learners share text books, is their safety guaranteed? What is also worrying is that the Parliament is not still closed yet learners are asked to go back to school. Meanwhile, Welamlambo Public School is a higher primary school in Tembisa at Welamlambo section and passing by on 1 June, I realised that only disinfection taking place and chairs and tables were put out side to have them cleaned. This is despite the claim that schools in Gauteng are ready to open but that’s not what on the ground and I strongly feel that it is a grave miscalculation for learners to go back to school as there is are no measures yet to quarantee maximum safety for learners and teachers.
