‘Education needs support’

The Lejweleputswa Department of Education held a stakeholder breakfast on Friday (05/04) at which assistance, financial and otherwise, was requested to enable the department to provide the essentials to learners in the district.

The district director, Phaello Zonke, outlined the department’s aspirations while acknowledging the very real challenges they face which threaten their ability to reach their goals.

“With this meeting we want to start partnerships and speak one language with all stakeholders. Education is a societal issue which needs assistance from all spheres for the positive impact to be felt in the entire community,” Zonke said.

Improving results from in the different phases, providing quality teaching and learning, as well as focusing on issues of discipline and moral regeneration, were identified as key aspects in ensuring satisfactory results in Gr. 12.

“Issues of reading, maths and literacy will be addressed aggressively to produce not only learners who can pass at the end of their schooling, but also who can be global competitors who can partake and succeed in tackling the Fourth Industrial Revolution that is taking the world by storm.”

Stakeholders of the Free State Chamber of Commerce, Harmony, Sibanye Stillwater and the Unemployment Forum, as well as the president of the Free State School Governing Body organisation, among others, pledged their willingness to make donations to see learners in the district performing to their full potential.

This year’s target for the Gr. 12 final results has been set at a 90% pass rate and 50% bachelor pass.

“All members of society are invited to pledge and donate in any way possible for the improvement of teaching and learning and for the betterment of the community at large.”

Issues highlighted at the breakfast which will receive urgent attention include social issues like child-headed families and teen pregnancy. Also in the pipeline are Gr. 12 camps for maths, science and commerce subjects, which will be held during the June holidays at the Harmony and Unitas High School.

When it comes to improving conditions at schools, special schools will be given priority and safety in schools will be addressed to curb violent incidents.

Food and transport will be made available at identified schools and vocation programmes for young teachers will be conducted by experienced teachers to improve teaching methods.
