Hon Speaker, the ANC applauds the joint venture between the Telkom Foundation and the University of Venda, through which 30 schools in the deep rural Vhembe region were given mobile lab kits, Mylab Chemistry and Science Kits projects. With these kits, thousands of school children in Limpopo will have access to practical science lessons.
This venture will enable the learners to qualitatively improve their results in maths and science. By making the necessary apparatus also available to educators, practical work in maths and sciences is able to take place for the benefit of all learners.
The ANC views this initiative as a step in the right direction which will go a long way in improving the quality of schooling, particularly performance in mathematics, science and technology. Furthermore, the ANC calls upon other businesses and foundations to partner with government in order to help with improving maths and science, especially in rural areas.
Together we will move South Africa forward - another good story to tell. I thank you.
The PAC was unable to use the slot, and the slot will go to the ANC.
