Damelin Student Letter 02 July 2020


RE: PARTIAL RE-OPENING OF DAMELIN CAMPUSES IN JULY 2020 DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC


For almost 100 days we have been living in a time of national lockdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Damelin management understands that the lockdown has brought some uncertainty among parents, guardians and sponsors, and for students’ themselves, who are concerned about finishing their academic year according to their original plans. We wish to assure you that we have reworked the academic calendars and assessment timetables to ensure that our students are provided with a fair opportunity to complete and succeed in the 2020 academic year.


Damelin is strictly obeying the national regulations during this time of lockdown and is following the guidance provided by the Department of Higher Education and Training. As per the directives issued by The Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology, Minister Blade Nzimande, no more than 33% of students may return to some on-campus classes under lockdown level 3 and following strict safety protocols.
Damelin has developed a plan for a partial re-opening of Damelin Campuses with contact tutorial classes for the Exit-Level students to commence from 06 July 2020 and this is being followed by classes with Specialised Software modules commencing from 13 July 2020.
