The Covid-19 Catch-Up Course registrations launch Tuesday 31 March – 6 April at www.covidcatchup.co.za. “This initiative will be at no cost to South Africans during the current 21-day lockdown,” says Mozambik chief executive Manny Nichas. “While our restaurants are closed during lockdown, we have looked at other ways to support, partner and serve the community.” Digital edutainment packs will be available at no cost for certain editions and R 100 for purchased downloads. “TutorBox has 15 years under its belt as a premium tutoring and educational agency and likeminded to Mozambik in our passion for communities.”
“In life-unusual times like these we all need to stand together and support one another,” says TutorBox chief executive Michelle Jardim. “The Covid-19 Catch-Up course construct was designed to secure continuity of learning during the lockdown with excellent teachers and tutors engaged to assist learners during this time. The kids’ activity packs include educational elements, emotion tracking tools and a whole lot of fun. Again, designed with family in mind and the ability to use materials that are already in and around the house.” Jardim adds that the Covid-19 pandemic has induced lateral thinking across all industries and “really spoke to our sense of community as likeminded brands and the upliftment of the South African youth.”
