President Jacob Zuma will commence the Government-wide Imbizo Focus Week by returning to Marhulana Primary School in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, to hand over a donation of computers, following his visit to the school in July 2016 as part of Mandela Day commemorations.
The Imbizo Focus Week is a uniquely South African channel of direct face-to-face communication and interaction between Government through its publicly elected representatives and members of the community.
In this particular case, President Zuma will interact with both the learners and teachers of Marhulana Primary School, as education forms an apex priority of Government.
During the visit to the school in July this year, where the President handed all the learners with warm blankets and school bags, he also made a commitment to equip the school with computers. The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China undertook to equip the school with computers, the delivery of which will take place tomorrow.
The use of ICTs in education is increasingly becoming an important medium for complementing the delivery of the curriculum in most developing countries, thus the importance that the Department of Basic Education places on e-Education is well reflected through the Action Plan to 2014: towards the realisation of schooling 2025.
The President will be accompanied by the Minister of Basic Education, Mrs Angie Motshekga. They will address assembly and hand-over a donation of computers and school uniforms.
