The KZN Museum education staff recently attended a Subject Advisor meeting held in Pinetown and presented about the Museum's educational programmes as it aligns to the school curriculum. Chief Education Cfficer Dumisani Jali, accompanied by Sakhile Maphumulo (Senior Education Officer) attended, among others, a History Educator Orientation workshop at the Hammarsdale Circuit which was supported by about 20 history educators. They presented on the concept called “A Day at the Museum”, which was warmly received by the teachers present. A teacher, who attended the pilot project in 2018, gave a very positive testimony of how she and her learners were assisted through the programme. The subject advisor quickly pointed out that the school’s history results improved due to the programme, which was most encouraging. All schools were encouraged to visit the KwaZulu Natal Museum to get assistance. The concept of the day at the Museum allows for a school to make a booking to visit the Museum, which would allow learners to spend the day at the Museum. Their day will be spent learning about grade specific content through the medium of lectures, tour of the galleries, watching relevant videos on the topics in question.
