Learning under lockdown

The hall at Fish Hoek High School.

This week marks the second week that Fish Hoek High School matrics have been back at school. The corridors are quiet with only the matrics on the premises and no more than 16 pupils per class. Grade 8 to 11 pupils will continue with distance learning. “My educators have never interacted with as much or upskilled as fast, as in this time,” said principal Gavin Fish. Matriculants were wearing masks at all times and observing social distancing. “Pupils arrive in their half of the alphabet and will not be admitted without a mask. We need to adhere unquestioningly and move towards what is is truly important, looking after one another and preparing academically for what lies ahead.”
