After two months of the school being vacated due to the lockdown, there was plenty that needed to be done to get the school ready to fight the spread of Covid-19.
With minimal resources provided by the DBE, the principal, Mrs Theron, together with a handful of Durban Academy staff members, workers and the SGB chairman, worked tirelessly to get the school sanitised and ready to welcome learners back.
To begin with, the overgrown grass and trees were cut, and broken chairs and tables fixed. Thereafter, the larger classrooms were identified and desks and chairs were sanitised and arranged 1.5m apart. The hall was also prepared with chairs set 1.5m apart and arrows to guide the learners through the daily screening process.
Durban Academy is taking the health and safety of each learner and staff member very seriously and we are ready to embrace the new challenges that the pandemic has brought to our way of teaching.
We are ready and eager for the 2020 academic year to continue.
