Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi has assured parents that if schools do not have the required personal protective gear, they will not open.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph, Lesufi says the province is prioritising safety first for all its learners and educators.

He adds that they are extending the deadline for homeschooling applications to the end of September.

Grade 7 and grade 12 students are preparing to return back to school on 1 June, after a two-month break brought on by the lockdown.
