Limpopo schools crisis deepens - media briefing

On Friday 15 June 2012 at 9.30am the National Association of School Governing Bodies (NASGB), SECTION27 and Khulumani Support Group will hold a community & press briefing at:

Regional Training Centre

  • Department of Health & Social Development
  • Cnr Rabe & Paul Kruger St, Polokwane.
  • All members of the media are invited and welcome to attend.

June 15th is the date by which the Pretoria High Court ordered that all schools in Limpopo should have received their text books for the new CAPS curriculum for Grades R, 1, 2, 3 (the foundation phase) and Grade 10.

This week a delegation from NASGB, SECTION27 and TAC has been meeting with school principals, governing bodies and learners in various parts of Limpopo.

We will report back on our findings; the ‘catch-up plan’ which the Department has devised and submitted to us; as well as discuss our immediate next steps if the National and Provincial Basic Education Departments place themselves in contempt of court by Saturday 16th of June.

This is a matter of the utmost importance. The lives of our future generations are being imperilled by the arrogance, maladministration and corruption of the few that they have trusted to run one of the most important departments of government.

In Memory of Robin Williams

Robin williams

A prayer posted by Christine Sine which she wrote while thinking about the impact Robin Williams (the actor in Good Will Hunting and many other films) whose death has been devastating for many following his suicide this week. Robin Williams took his own life in a battle with major depression. In Khulumani, we too know the terrible impact of brokenness and pain.

God we know the wounds our world can inflict,
And have felt the heartache of its brokenness.
Let us have eyes to see and ears to hear,
That pain can give birth to laughter,
That humour often hides our fears.
Let us look at sorrow and anguish and not blink.
Accepting responsibility let us become pilgrims in the ruins,
Choosing to respond with love and compassion,
To all who are hurting and in pain.
