sadtu90Cape Argus reports that to ease the workload for teachers this year, the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) has launched an app.  

The Sadtu Western Cape communication app was created with labour federation Cosatu to provide teachers and pupils with materials to help their schooling.  Sadtu provincial secretary Jonavon Rustin indicated that the app has lesson plans for foundation phase classes, curriculum policy documents and information about music, arts and culture.  “We worked on an app for educators to access a number education resources to help learners in class.  It also has important information on LGBTQ+, violence against women and sexual harassment, which teachers can use in the classroom for lessons,” said Rustin.  Sadtu provincial education convener Faseega Solomon indicated that the first 10 weeks of CAPS-aligned lesson plans for this year were available for maths and English.  The innovation will hopefully save teachers plenty of time and improve the quality of education that pupils received, Solomon stated.  For more information on the app visit
