The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education will this Monday start broadcasting radio lessons on Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) stations.
Apart from radio lessons, the Ministry is in the process of developing emergency learning modules, television lessons and e-learning material for learners to ensure that pupils continue learning in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Sunday, the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education released a radio lessons programme timetable for primary schools. In a statement, the Ministry said:
The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education in conjunction with ZBC will be rolling out radio lessons as part of an alternative learning platform.
The first schedule which is for the Primary School level will be aired from 15 June 2020 to 26 June 2020. Thereafter another schedule will be provided.
Parents and guardians are advised to familiarise themselves with the schedule so that they assist their children as much as possible.
Early Childhood Development (ECD) lessons will be broadcast on National FM while Grade 3 and Grade 7 pupils will get their radio lessons on Power FM, Classic 263, Radio Zimbabwe and Khulumani FM.
However, Grade 4 to Grade 6 pupils are not covered in the first schedule.
The lessons run for between 15 minutes to one hour.
