Covid-19 may have disrupted the school year, but that doesn't mean the work of schools stopped – it only got more challenging!

News24 wants to celebrate schools and teachers who went beyond the call of duty to make sure their pupils continued learning. Help us find these superheroes by nominating them in one of the following categories.

Schools: Best Covid-19 'keep learning' initiative

Nominate a school that found an innovative way to let their pupils continue to learn. Whether it was with a creative way to keep social distancing in class, or a clever way to distribute homework, this school thought outside the box to make sure disruption of the school year was kept at a minimum. We want to see creativity and a clever use of whatever resources your school had at its disposal. 

Teacher of the year

Did your teacher exhibit superpowers by going the extra mile to make sure your essays are graded? Did he bring your homework to your doorstep or WhatsApp your daily lesson? We are looking for teachers whose extra efforts ensured their pupils did not fall behind with their work, well beyond the call of duty.

Pupils' award: Best charity initiative

Did you, your class or a class that you know of make an effort to help someone in need due to the Covid-19 pandemic? Tell us what you did, who you helped and why you did so?

Nominations close on 25 October. Our panel of judges will choose 5 finalists in each category whereafter readers will be able to vote for the winners. The winner in each category will be featured on News24. Nominations can be made via email to or by completing this entry form.
