Mandela centenaries will not disrupt schools reopening

“We can confirm that message is false and must be ignored and deleted as it has caused much confusion in the basic education sector,” it said of the message claiming to come from the Office of the Presidency.

On 18 July, South Africa and the world will commemorate what would have been Tata’s 100th birthday. Mandela died on 5 December 2013, at the age of 95.

The department said originators of the message are seeking to create anxiety and uncertainty in schools. This as schools are scheduled to open on 17 July.

“The Department has official channels of communication with all our schools and does not communicate such important information via social media. Our schools went on recess on 22 June and will resume on 17 July 2018 as per the school calendar approved two years ago.

“We expect all our learners and educators alike to report for duty as scheduled in order to commence the third term without any further delays.”

The department said the Mandela celebrations will proceed without causing disruptions in schools.
