After School Game Changer Seminarhttps://www.sun.ac.za/english/Lists/Events/DispForm.aspx?ID=4354After School Game Changer Seminar<p style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:#595959;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;">​​Twins brought up in two different contexts – one in a resourced home and one in poverty – will enter adulthood with very different opportunities and possibilities. Closing the opportunity gap for under-resourced learners requires everyone to get involved in the development of our children and youths. This demands a multidisciplinary response from academia, civil society and government. Given the constraints of the existing CAPS curriculum, enrichment programmes after formal school hours offer an opportunity to close the gap. Extended education is increasingly being recognised as a key field for investment and action. Join us to find out more about what is happening in the sector and the opportunities for collaborative projects, research and student engagement.</span></span></p><p style="margin:0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font></p><p style="margin:0px;"><font size="3"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:#595959;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;"> </span></span><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0000ff"><a href="/si/en-za/Documents/Events/ASGC/After%20School%20Game%20Changer%20Seminar%20May%20-%20Programme.pdf" target="_blank"><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;">Click here for more information</span></a><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;">.</span></span></font></span></font></p><p style="margin:0px;"><strong><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000"> </font></span></strong></p><p style="margin:0px;"><strong><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000">We look forward to seeing you there!</font></span></strong></p><p style="margin:0px;"><strong><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"corbel",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000"> </font></span></strong></p><table width="0" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="background-position:0% 0%;margin:0px;width:444pt;background-image:none;background-repeat:repeat;background-attachment:scroll;background-clip:border-box;background-origin:padding-box;background-size:auto;"><tbody><tr><td width="96" valign="top" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:60pt;"><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Date: </span></p></td><td width="30" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:18.75pt;background-color:transparent;"></td><td width="466" valign="top" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:290.25pt;"><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Thursday 30 May 2019 </span></p></td></tr><tr><td width="96" valign="top" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:60pt;"><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Time: </span></p></td><td width="30" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:18.75pt;background-color:transparent;"></td><td width="466" valign="top" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:290.25pt;"><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2">09:30–12:30 </span></p></td></tr><tr><td width="96" valign="top" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:60pt;"><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Venue: </span></p></td><td width="30" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:18.75pt;background-color:transparent;"></td><td width="466" valign="top" style="margin:0px;padding:0mm;border:0px #000000;width:290.25pt;"><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Room 5003, Faculty of Education</span></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p style="margin:0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font></p><p style="margin:0px;"><strong><span style="margin:0px;color:#58585a;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:14.5pt;">RSVP to</span></strong><strong><span style="margin:0px;color:#1f497d;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:14.5pt;"> </span></strong><a href="mailto:chrishar@sun.ac.za"><span class="ms-rteThemeForeColor-9-5" style="margin:0px;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:14.5pt;">chrishar@sun.ac.za</span></a><strong><span style="margin:0px;color:#1f497d;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:14.5pt;"> by</span></strong><strong><span style="margin:0px;color:#58585a;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:14.5pt;"> </span></strong><strong><span style="margin:0px;color:#595959;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:14.5pt;">27 May 2019</span></strong><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;"></span></p> <font size="3"></font><font color="#000000"></font><font face="Times New Roman"></font><p><br> </p>2019-05-30T07:30:00Z2019-05-30T10:30:00ZRoom 5003, Faculty of Education
#LunchBoxChallenge https://www.sun.ac.za/english/Lists/Events/DispForm.aspx?ID=4193#LunchBoxChallenge <p>​​​​​​</p><p>The University of Cape Town (UCT) recently launched a movement called the #LunchBoxChallenge. This initiative aims to combat the hunger crisis faced by many of South Africa’s school children. It is estimated that three out of four South African learners go to school hungry each day. This is a frightening number considering that these children face a much larger risk of stunting and poor academic performance, especially during early childhood development. This causes irreparable harm to a person’s ability to learn and develop. Stellenbosch University (SU) has accepted UCT’s challenge to host our very own #LunchBoxChallenge event to pack 20 000 meals for learners in this critical development phase. </p><p>Connect Maties, the student fundraising arm for social impact, and Rise Against Hunger Africa (RAH) have partnered in this initiative to pack and donate the 20 000 meals to RAH’s early childhood development feeding programmes. RAH is a volunteer-based meal-packaging programme with the goal of eradicating world hunger by 2030. RAH meals are provided in schools to encourage increased enrolment and attendance. Supplying learners with these regular meals means that they are provided with the necessary energy to concentrate, learn and participate in school activities. This in turn enables them to succeed academically and improves their opportunities for the future.</p><p>The focus of this initiative – to contribute to eradicating world hunger by 2030 – aligns with SU’s social impact theme of “Food security and health”. This in turn aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development goals of “Zero hunger” and “Good health & well-being”. </p><p>This call is for all SU students and staff members to help us accept UCT’s challenge to ensure that children are no longer hungry at school. </p><p>The meal-packaging event will take place on Saturday 13 April. There will be two slots available for volunteers in the Neelsie: 10:00–11:00 and 11:30–12:30.
