A young boy aged 15 in grade 10 said that his educational program is affected by something he does not know. He said, ” I am very scared because more people are dying because form COVID- 19, I am scared to go to school when people are dying and a time where learners in other provinces have tested positive of the virus and as a high school student I’m worried that I am going to repeat the same grade. What makes me even more scared is that i must go back to school not knowing what to expect and i heard that already there are reports that two schools in Diepkloof have learners who have tested positive. A relative of mine is going to one of the schools and his friend in another i am not sure if I must go to school I am afraid.”
