Teaching material on its way

2010-10-20 11:29

The Free State education department today showcased specialised learning and teaching support material that would be delivered to government schools for 2011/12 school year.

“This stationary, as you can see in this warehouse, is ready to be delivered to all non-section 21 schools,” said Free State premier Ace Magashule.

The education department was responsible for the provision of learning and teaching support material to non-section 21 schools, of which there were about 760 in the Free State that catered for nearly 61 000 pupils.

The items showcased to the local media include items such as the abacus, drawing boards, scientific calculators and other specialised material which the department was not able to provide in the past.

Magashule said the material would allow the province to focus on all areas of teaching and learning in government-dependent schools.

Free State MEC for education Tate Makgoe said the department’s leaders were constantly challenged to do things differently.

“You are welcome to look. These boxes have equipment inside and they are not for show.”

School principals at the event said the idea to send the teaching material for delivery at this time of the year was good.

“It a great idea; looking forward,” said Mash Mawasha from the Lekhulong principals’ council.

Principal of Kroonstad Phephetso Secondary school Hlalefo Rantie said he was very happy.

“It’s a plus. It’s better for our preparation for 2011.”

He said this way the problems could be picked up earlier and addressed before the school year started.

Free State superintendent-general for education Ramathe Malope said the textbooks to these schools would follow soon, before the end of the year.
