On May 17, 2023, the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) hosted the Positive Behaviour Day at the Positive Behaviour Intervention and Resource Centre (PBIRC) in Wynberg. The event aimed to address the challenge of learner discipline, which has been an ongoing issue since the COVID19 pandemic.
The Western Cape has launched the #BackOnTrack campaign, a massive R1.2 billion educational program aimed at addressing the significant decline in learning outcomes due to the Covid19 pandemic. The campaign aims to improve learning outcomes in the region over the next three years and secure a brighter future for children.
Winter can bring unpredictable and sometimes fierce weather conditions, particularly in Cape Town. The City of Cape Town understands the importance of taking proactive measures to reduce the risks associated with the winter months. To this end, the City has established the Winter Task Team, consisting of over 25 City departments and external partners, to oversee risk mitigation measures before and during winter, with the Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) coordinating the team’s work.
