Sehularo said Naledi and Mogoditshane senior secondary schools, where form five examinations are marked, have deferred the bootcamps. On the issue of students having to choose between participating in the bootcamp and Botswana Games, Sehularo said the students could choose games and arrangements would be made to help them.
