Lockdown And Return To Campus.
After schools closed on 16 March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the time was well spent preparing the Ashton campus for the safe return of the students. Ashton’s Matric and Grade 7 students returned to Campus on 1 June after being taught through the various age-appropriate online platforms introduced by Ashton. Using a phased-in approach, most of the students had returned by 17 June - except for the Ashlings. Life has returned to our Campus, and the academic school term will end officially on Friday 26 June. However, it became evident that some parents were understandably reluctant to send their children back to school due to the unpredictability of the pandemic. Fortunately, to accommodate as many students during this time as possible, Ashton Virtual College was launched.
