The KZN Museum recently hosted their Sabalala Programme year end functions. The closing functions are held annually to reward the learners who participated in the Sabalala After School programme for their attendance and participation the 2019 year. On the 8 October learners from Edendale Primary School attended one of the year end function at the Museum and they included learners from the Grange Primary School, Caluza Primary School and Henryville Primary School. Learners were treated to a fun science show hosted by Fun Science Secret Lab. The Sabalala Nolwazi after school programme is an initiative run by the KZN Museum both through both outreach and in-house programmes. The outreach programme is designed to take educational museum resources to communities that are unable to visit the KwaZulu- Natal Museum. The programme focuses on CAPS aligned activities in different subjects. It also strives to educate the learners and communities about best practices to promote sustainable living within communities. Three times a week learners who can visit the Museum attend classes that are held during the week after schoo.
