Level 3 Lockdown. As parents, how do we adjust to the new norm at school? Our social feeds are flooded and somewhat overwhelming: different opinions, different stats, different advice. If you are looking for help for school in this new phase, there’s an abundance of services and products that can make life much easier:
Lets Mask It!
Covid-19 has certainly unleashed the creativity and artesanal skills in everyone- young and old. The dust has been wiped off the sewing machines, and mass production of masks has set the trend. These have been deemed safe to wear, and an absolute must to ward off the disease.
So, let’s face it ( or mask it): masks are here to stay, and are probably the most fashionable item to own. And we need more than one to keep them clean. They could be elasticated, strung, with filters or without: the options are endless. Choose from traditional African print masks, to DIY masks and even some shields.

Whizzing around Gauteng is always easy. But with the new regulations and the question of safety and sanitation, we are all treading with caution. Is the car sanitised? Who are my kids travelling with? Are my kids at risk with the other passengers?

Tuition and Homeschooling Services
