At the start of 2020, learners all over South Africa prepared excitedly for school tours, plays, matric dances and the like. And then suddenly – lockdown. From Umhlanga to Uitenhage to Upington, there isn’t any school or learner in South Africa that wasn’t radically impacted by the COVID-19 Lockdown. This meant schooling from home. Here are 5 quotes from young South Africans reminding us of what it was like to learn under lockdown*:
