- With lockdown easing to Level 2, more and more school kids have slowly been allowed to attend classes
- Matriculants, who were the first priority, were the first group to enter the school gates
- In a bid to welcome their fellow learners back, matrics at a Western Cape school performed a well-rehearsed dance
Once upon a time, we all wished something could happen that would result in schools closing for just a while to give us a break from homework and exams. This year that old wish got fulfilled after the coronavirus came about and wreaked havoc on work, school and daily life.
While it may have been fun to stay home for the first few days, the seriousness of the virus and its impact on everyone's lives soon became a harsh reality. Schoolkids and matriculants in particular became anxious about the future of their education.
Nearly five months later and with continuous interruptions of their schooling career, matriculants were finally allowed to attend their classes. Not long thereafter, other learners too joined them. These matriculants at Okiep High School in the Western Cape decided to welcome their fellow learners back with a well-rehearsed dance routine. People loved it.

In other Briefly.co.za news, when a car guard named Thabang, who found a stranger's money laying in a parking lot, returned the money to the stranger, he was dubbed a hero. Franco Mbhu took to Facebook to share the story of how he had lost his R600 cash in the parking lot at Boulder shopping mall in Midrand.
"Here is my hero of the day. Earlier in the day [I met] this gentleman Thabang, a car guard from Boulders shopping mall in Midrand. I accidentally dropped R600 in the parking lot when I was removing my phone from my pocket without realising on the spot, then as I was driving out the mall I realised that my pocket was empty, no funds nothing.
"I immediately I went back where I [had been], fortunately this champ was still around. I then politely asked him if he didn't see any money around the area because I've just lost my R600. Unexpectedly Thabang said to me, "I got it bro." I couldn't believe that people of this calibre are still available around us," he said.
Facebook users joined Franco in applauding Thabang for his good-hearted ways.
