It is with great relief that schools have received permission to return to sport. This news was published in the Government gazette number 44339 on 27 March 2021. The permission is granted with the proviso that the Covid safety measures are strictly adhered to, as published in the gazette.

SASRA support the return to play policy issued by SARU as the safe return to play for our players is a priority.
