Spirits were high at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology's Bellville campus as the university opened its new vaccination on Monday, making it the first tertiary institution in the country to do so.

The facility started operating on Monday and continues to administer Covid-19 vaccines to members of it's staff and students at the Richard Sacco Building on its Bellville campus. 

During his visit to the vaccination centre, Vice-Chancellor, Prof Chris Nhlapo, applauded the institution for playing its role in the fight against the virus:

It is important that we play our role in saving lives. There’s no other way. That is the mission, everything else is secondary because this scourge is affecting all of us.

Joined by other Executive Management members on a tour of the facility, he was also among the CPUT staff members who received their first jabs, and said he was particularly impressed with the CPUT staff members working at the centre.

According to Compliance and Risk Officer, Business Continuity and Covid-19, Prof Mellet Moll, a mixture of staff members over the age of 60 and health students were vaccinated at the centre during its first day of operation.

“We are very excited because this is a lot of work that came together,” he said

He further said that the centre has been accredited by the Western Cape Department of Health and was expected to do 60 vaccinations a day this week. Adding that at full capacity, the centre would be able to administer 500 vaccines a day.

According to a statement issued on CPUT's website, the following individuals are currently eligible and can be vaccinated at the centre:  

  • Staff members and students who are 60 years old or older (ID document required as proof).
  • Staff members who are healthcare workers - clinical and non-clinical, irrespective of age (proof required from line manager and or registration with a health statutory body)
  • Students who are registered for healthcare-related programmes (proof of registration required).

 Those who are eligible can register for an appointment by clicking the following link

Nelson Mandela University has moved to suspend contact classes on campus in Geberha following a surge in the number of Covid-19 infections amongst its students in the past 24 hours.

The Herald Live reported that, According to a memo that was sent to the university's staff and students on Tuesday. as evidenced by the sharp increase in the rate of infections across the province, a decision was taken to hold virtual classes in an attempt to bring the spread of the coronavirus under control. 

All mask-to-mask sessions will be halted from today [Tuesday] until we determine when it is safe to resume. Likewise, all planned in-person assessments are to be transferred to online platforms or deferred until it is deemed safe to return to mask-to-mask sessions.

“Lecturers will communicate changes to assessment, learning and teaching schedules in their modules,” NMU said.

As further stated by the letter, many of the university's students infected with Covid-19 were asymptomatic and thus showed no signs of the virus.

This is why it becomes critical to always wear a face mask in all our buildings and when you are walking to or around campus. This, accompanied by the other preventive measures of sanitising hands and maintaining a safe distance, will assist in the ongoing efforts to contain the virus and curb its impact on the academic project.

TUT Pauses Classes Following Covid-19 Related Death

Tuesday, 8 June, 2021 - 14:03 Author Bulelani Dyomfana

The Tswane University of Technology has announced that they will be suspending all contact classes following the death of one of it's students due to Covid-19 related complications.

With effect from Monday, June 7th, The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) has announced that it will suspend all contact classes following the death of a student due to Covid-19.

This comes after the University reported an increase in the number of students, as well as staff members, who have tested positive for Covid-19.

According to an article published by The Citizen, the University's Deputy Vice-Chancellor of teaching, learning and technology, Prof Stanley Mukhola called for adherence to Covid -19 rules to stop the spread. 

The rise in infections in communities, including our TUT community, calls for more vigilance and adherence to the required Covid-19 rules to help stop the spread.

“In view of these risks, students will resume online teaching and learning from Monday as per the approved multimodal teaching and learning strategy. Students will be provided with the necessary data to support them with online learning,” he added

Furthermore, the University's Spokesperson, Phaphama Tshisikhawe told the SABC that the university was saddened by the passing of the student last week, who was also the first that is known to have succumbed to Covid-19 related complications.

We are extremely sad. The staff [and] the students as well. I would like to take this opportunity also to say condolences to the family and convey that message. A young life lost is devastating to the community, the University, to her friends and family as well.

Tshisikhawe also spoke to radio 702 Mandy Weiner in an interview and confirmed they have resumed online classes where she said that this is actually the first Covid related incident that the university is aware of and has a full report on.

She continued to say, "We have suspended contact classes, this was not because of the death of the student. The majority of our provinces are currently on the third wave of Covid-19 infections and the infection rate is especially high and concerning in Gauteng and that's the reason why the contact classes were suspended".

Nyari Samushonga, WeThinkCode_ CEO, shares what inspired her to start coding

Tuesday, 8 June, 2021 - 13:52 Author Sakinah Samuels

Interested in a career in software development and coding? Nyari Samushonga, CEO of WeThinkCode_, shared with Careers Portal what inspired her to start coding.

WeThinkCode_ offers coding courses and if you're interested in building a career in coding and software development, you should definitely consider them.

Nyari Samushonga, CEO of WeThinkCode_, shared with Careers Portal what inspired her to start coding.

WeThinkCode_ is a software development academy which recruits South African youth, between 17 and 35 years of age, to get to learn how to code.

Samushonga was an Accountant before she dove deep into the coding world. She says this gave her experience in different industries but as a Auditor, "it was a very regulatory thing" which at some point she no longer felt a spark with it.

I wanted to create. I wanted to part of making the things that solve problems and I kind of stumbled upon it.

The WeThinkCode_ CEO started her careers in coding at 30 years old after not being sure what she would do after leaving Accountancy. 

She then got introduced to a software consulting company and after this, she then thought it would be great to live a life where she has the ability to make solutions to problems she comes across.

Coding also allowed her to still work in any kind of environment and industry, as Accountancy once did. She says this meant she wasn't boxed in. 

Samushonga then went on to work in many different industries, from banks to trade unions and now an educational institutional.

All of it is still very much about software and it's still about solving problems. That's what excites me about it.

She is also able to see the impact the work she does have on a daily basis.

"People should really look at this opportunity and see what it can do for them and subsequently, what they can do for others with the skill set that they get."

WeThinkCode_ Debunks Some Common Coding Myths

Tuesday, 8 June, 2021 - 11:35 Author Sakinah Samuels

 

Nyari Samushonga, CEO of WeThinkCode_, debunked some common coding misconceptions. WeThinkCode_ should be the first place you think of when you think about coding.

Nyari Samushonga, CEO of WeThinkCode_, sat down with Careers Portal to debunk some coding myths and now we're sharing them with our readers.

WeThinkCode_ is a software development academy which recruits South African youth, between 17 and 35 years of age, to get to learn how to code.

First and foremost, maybe the most important myth to debunk, Samushonga says:

Well, the first one is that it's a man's job obviously and it's a global pandemic. I think 20% of people in technical jobs and software are women and yet, when you look at our campus, the women outperform the guys.

WeThinkCode_ has been working very hard to increase the percentage of women in their cohort, aiming for at least 40% this year.

Who's to blame for this misconception? Environment. Family, friends and teachers are often telling women that coding is not for them which Samushonga rejecting this and saying, "there are a lot of girls in coding and we're cool too".

Another misconception is "you'll be relegated to some basement and they'll feed you through a tube and you'll never get out" which is obviously not true. Coding offers a wide variety of things to do such as front end development, gaming and stricter professions in other industries.

The sky is really the limit.

The other misconception is that you need to be mathematically minded to do coding and go into software development or you'll struggle.

It was actually found that people who are strong in languages also do well with software development as Samushonga explains:

There's a high correlation because linguistics is similarly about constructing sentences in a particular way to communicate a particular thing and coding is about telling a computer what to do in a particular language.

These types of misconceptions are often what keeps people from going into coding, which shouldn't be the case.

More Vaccination Sites to Open for Teachers

Tuesday, 8 June, 2021 - 11:04 Author Sakinah Samuels

Government, unions and the public are shifting their focus to teachers being vaccinated with more vaccination sites opening soon for teachers. Government is said to have secured thousands of vaccine doses for teachers.

Advertisement

 

In Kwazulu-Natal, 21 new vaccination sites will be opened for teachers. This answers calls from unions and civil society to have teachers prioritised in the vaccine rollout.

Teacher vaccinations will commence on 9 June in the province after KZN Premier Sihle Zikalala said the province will be receiving 110 400 Johnson & Johnson vaccines for this category. 

We already have a database for these educators, which should make their vaccination easier. These educators will be guided by management in their respective districts and circuits, regarding which sites to go to, in order to get vaccinated.

Other districts will open new sites where none exist while some will see existing sites designated for these teacher vaccines. Due to teachers working from Monday until Friday, these vaccination sites might stay open for weekends.

Some teachers have been vaccinated as South Africa is now in the middle of Phase 2 of the vaccine rollout which prioritises those over 60 years of age, which some individuals in the teaching sector will fall under. 

These vaccinations being made available to all teachers are now especially important as the country experiences a third wave of Covid infections and rising case numbers are seen in schools. 

Teachers, along with educators unions, have shown concern about the Department’s announcement that primary schools will see all learners return in full-capacity every day from the beginning of third term which starts on 26 July. 

The Minister and Deputy Minister of the Basic Education Department supported those who have called for teachers to be prioritised in the vaccine rollout with the Minister, Angie Motshekga, saying:

I've raised it with Cabinet long ago. Last year we lost scores of teachers through the virus and we lost some of our most experienced people. We lost many people in the sector so I've been raising the issue with the Minister of Health. 

The Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, has been vaccinated against Covid-19 as part of phase 2 of the vaccine rollout. The Minister received the Pfizer vaccine at eSangweni Clinic in Tembisa.

Over 140 000 Students Rejected From NSFAS Funding This Year

Tuesday, 8 June, 2021 - 09:51 Author Sakinah Samuels

With NSFAS having released funding decisions for 2021, the Minister of Higher Education has now taken it upon himself to congratulate those who were successful in applying for the NSFAS bursary.

Advertisement

 

146 524 students were not successful in attempting to be funded by NSFAS for the 2021 funding. That’s the first thing the Department of Higher Education mentioned after congratulating those who were successful in a statement released on Monday.

The statement read:

Minister Nzimande confirms that 93 532 TVET College students and 52 992 University students did not receive NSFAS funding for the 2021 academic year.

Why were they rejected? Well the reasons are as follows:

  • 5376 TVET students were unfunded due to them having academic pathways which were not in accordance with NSFAS guidelines
  • 22 014 University students could not qualify for funding as they already had their first qualifications
  • 22 789 students, both University and TVET, exceeded the N+ rule
  • 96 342 TVET and University students combined failed the previous year
  • 3 University students were funded by other bursaries

The Department then goes on to say, “NSFAS ensures that financial aid reaches the right and deserving students timeously … who are admitted to study at public universities and colleges, are provided with financial support to obtain their first undergraduate qualification.”

NSFAS has come under fire for not providing postgraduate and missing middle students with bursaries with them using the above to support their actions. Minister Nzimande has also said that Government is doing it’s job as NSFAS provides bursaries to poor and working class students, which unfortunately does not cover those who fall under the missing middle category.

The funding must also be affordable within the parameters of the funding provided by government, with a focus on the need for sustainability of the scheme for the future.

Students often find themselves to be shocked when they realise that NSFAS is not funding them for the year and are only told once they enquire that they are not funded and the reason behind it. Sometimes, students failed to meet the requirements and other times, they are postgraduate students who, under the old NSFAS rules, would have been funded should they have been studying towards a specific programme.

As for the N+1 rule, this says that students are funded for one year more than the prescribed duration of their course, eg. if it’s a 4-year course, students will then be able to be funded for 5.

To this, the Minister then responds by encouraging students to “familiarise themselves with the provisions of the funding guidelines to avoid being unfunded or turned down”.

The Minister urges NSFAS together with all institutions to conduct information sessions with the South African National Student Union and all Student Representative Councils on these guidelines so as to minimize the number of students who are unfunded or unsuccessful in their applications. 

The Department of Higher Education and Training has said that they will then continue with career exhibitions and information sessions through Khetha, which is the Department’s career development services. 

NSFAS provides bursaries to students and prospective students who come from poor and working class backgrounds wanting to study at a public University or TVET College in South Africa. NSFAS bursary applications will open in August//September for 2022 funding.

The Northern Cape Department of Education has recorded an increase in COVID-19 infections in schools for a fourth consecutive week. As a result, 11 schools were closed in the province and 9 were scheduled to reopen on Monday the 7th of June.

Northern Cape Department of Education spokesperson, Geoffrey Van Der Merwe went on to say that the situation in the province is not that good, despite efforts to bring it under control:

For the month of May, for the fourth consecutive week an increase in Covid-19 infections. Just last week we recorded 348 infections. What of course of great concern to us is the number of learners that have tested positive.

Last week saw 276 learners tested positive in total for the month of May with 911 positive cases of which just over 400 are still active cases, so of course which van der Merwe says, "is of great concern to us and its disrupting schools".

Just during the month, the Department closed and reopened 98 schools in the province with two schools in the Namaqua District remaining closed.

Speaking on the effect of the closures and reopenings on learners, Van Merwe also pointed out that it largely depends on the extent of the infections in the schools in question. 

It all depends on the situation at the specific schools. Remember we have a close relationship with the Department of Health and they guide us on what we should do. Some schools close for a period of ten days, other schools close for disinfection. It all depends on the infections in schools.

During the month of May, the department had released a statement in which it announced that it would be closing down 49 schools for disinfection, most of which were reopened on the 24th of May.

Dept Now Encouraging Teachers Over 60 To Get Vaccinated

Monday, 7 June, 2021 - 11:37 Author Sakinah Samuels

The Department of Higher Education is now calling for teachers over 60 to go and register to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. The country is currently in Phase 2 of it's vaccine rollout to protect against Covid-19.

The Minister, along with Deputy Minister Reginah Mhaule, encourages teachers who are over 60 to get vaccinated. There is said to be more than 18 000 teachers who are over 60 years old.

Mhaule said: 

I am making an urgent call to all of them. Let them register and let them come and vaccinate. They must not be afraid. They must not listen to all the negativity that other people are saying. We are encouraging them. It's for their health, not for somebody else's. It's also for the health of their loved ones.

Motshekga has also said that she supports those who are calling for teachers to be prioritised in the vaccine rollout. On this, she said:

I've raised it with Cabinet long ago. Last year we lost scores of teachers through the virus and we lost some of our most experienced people. We lost many people in the sector so I've been raising the issue with the Minister of Health.

She continued to say that the Minister of Health is very supportive and that there are plans to make sure teachers and other frontline workers are prioritised.

The Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, has been vaccinated against Covid-19 as part of phase 2 of the vaccine rollout. The Minister received the Pfizer vaccine at eSangweni Clinic in Tembisa.

Motshekga's mother, sister and husband received their vaccines that day as well.

The Minister herself has been infected with Covid-19 and says that it was "a vicious attack". She then advises anyone to take advantage when they're given the opportunity to vaccinate.

It's a very difficult disease. It can be extremely problematic so if there's anything they should do, it's to take advantage of this opportunity to be vaccinated. It's very important.

The Deputy Minister received her Pfizer vaccine in Pretoria on 25 May and is due for her second shot after 3 weeks.

The Department hopes that Ministers being vaccinated will encourage South Africans to do the same.

Younger teachers and learners in schools are urged to help the elderly register and encourage them to get vaccinated.

Matric Exam Rewrites Now Underway

Monday, 7 June, 2021 - 11:22 Author Sakinah Samuels

Just last week we saw the start of the May/June Matric exams which would cover rewrites. This is done through the Second Chance Matric Programme where learners can get a second chance at improved Matric results.

The May/June Matric examinations are now underway. This exam period is for individuals who are wishing to gain their Senior Certificate (SC) or their National Senior Certificate (NSC).

Candidates writing during this period includes those rewriting their Matric exams from last year or adults wishing to complete their Matric qualification. This is done through the Second Chance Matric Programme.

The Matric rewrites commenced on 26 May and will continue until 7 July.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing which needs to be followed, more classes and rooms had to be allocated where exams could take place. 

One learner taking part in the programme said:

All you have to do is you have to go home and study. You have to study hard.

With the programme, learners are given extra support and revision to make sure they are ready for the exam rewrite.

Learners look to rewrite because they either did not reach the requirements needed to get their NSC or to get into the University programme they wanted.

"Many people don't get second chances but if you do Matric, you can get a second chance, rewrite, improve your marks, improve your dreams and I would recommend that they do it."
