HAVE YOU RECEIVED YOUR TEXTBOOKS AND WORKBOOKS FOR 2013?

TEXTBOOKS AND WORKBOOKS FOR EVERY LEARNER ARE A RIGHT THAT CAN BE ENFORCED BY LAW. LET’S GIVE ALL OF OUR CHILDREN A REAL OPPORTUNITY TO SUCEEED IN 2013

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has promised that all textbooks and workbooks will be delivered to schools before the start of the 2013 school year. For Limpopo, the deadline for delivery is 15 December 2012.

This is an important commitment which every parent and learner supports. To assist the DBE to keep its promise we urge all school governing bodies (SGBs), learner organisations, parents and unions of teachers to report any shortages or incorrect delivery of these materials to the nearest office of the DBE. Also, send your reports to the one of the following organisations who will be monitoring the DBE’s progress with delivery of books.

Delays in reporting lead to delays in learning. Delays in learning affect all of our future. Help ensure the correct and timeous delivery of textbooks, workbooks and stationery!
