It’s paramount for them to return ASAP. Staying home any longer could have detrimental effects both academically and mentally for their entire forthcoming secondary schooling

My Grade 6 daughter needs to return to school so she can reach the necessary milestones required to ensure she is emotionally, mentally and academically prepared for the transition to high school. I feel all grade 6’s need the appropriate closure on this extremely important chapter in their lives.

The mental health of these Grade 6 children is so important. They need to feel confident before they take the big step to high school. They need to be treated as a priority in the return to school plan so they can have a proper closure to primary school and start secondary school successfully. I'm okay keeping my other primary school child home, just get the Grade 6 back please.

Our son is in Grade 6 and deserves, let alone needs and craves, the chance to experience his final weeks in primary school and to prepare for grade 6. There isn't a SCERIC of evidence to justify why they can't start school NOW! Why would this possibly be taken away from them??!

Gde 6 need the opportunity to develop their skills and capabilities before transitioning to Year 7. The more face to face time they have the better their confidence and mental health. Go Gde 6.

Grade 6 as we all know is their final year at primary school. Moving into year 7, into secondary school is a huge step. Having missed the majority of this year my grade 6 is no where near been prepared for that transition via remote learning. It’s imperative they are back for term 4.
