The initiative is aimed at limiting the impact of the lockdown to the school calendar. It is part of the broader efforts to prevent a total loss of school year since the lockdown was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa as a measure to combat the spread of coronavirus, known as COVID-19.
Parents and learners are encouraged to tune in to @SABCEducation radio and TV stations for the COVID19 Curriculum Support Programmes for learners. The programme starts tomorrow, 9 April – see schedule @DBE_SA @ElijahMhlanga @GovernmentZA #Day13 #Day13ofLockdown pic.twitter.com/tn09VckQEq
