The Western Cape Department of Education has confirmed that four teachers as from next week be teaching IsXhosa in Grade 1 in ten schools in the province. 

This is part of the Department of Basic Education’s African Language Pilot Project. 

WCED’s Paddy Attwell said a fifth teacher will be employed next week and the teachers will be visiting two to three schools. 

Attwell added that the teachers also met stuff and learners at the participating schools. The schools have also opted to extend the school day to accommodate the lesson probably by half an hour a day.

“The participating schools have respondent enthusiastically to the pilot at all levels and appreciate the support of our project team. The Grade 1 teacher’s confirmed that they are looking forward to learning isiXhosa as well as with their learners.” Attwell added.
