A successful seminar was held in Polokwane organised by the Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism which focussed exclusively on environmental education. The topics discussed were:

  • How to develop, manage and run environmental education programmes and activities in EE centres
  • Inclusion of people living with disabilities in EE programmes and activities
  • How can environmental education officers design programmes to support implementation of environmental focus in the current curriculum

GET (Intermediate Phase) Social Science Work Book
Teacher Pack
If you teach history in and reside in Gauteng or North West then don't miss an opportunity to visit Maropeng at The Cradle of Mankind. School visits are encouraged and they have an excellent school pack full of activities for the GET Phase and most other Learning Areas. With a bit of adaptation the free materials can also be used in class without a visit they are that good!
