In March 2020 the school along with every other school in South Africa was closed due to the coronovirus pandemic. During lockdown a skeleton staff at school have been delivering food parcels to the pupils. From June onwards preparations were being made for a gradual reopening of the school. It's good to be able to report that the school supplied food parcels and homework to pupils during lockdown and that on 9 July a phased re-opening of the school will start.
