Teachers and sex education in schools

Teachers and sex education in schools

Guest : Tracey Engelbrecht

Teachers are up in arms over a new school curriculum that would see them teaching
Grade 7's about masturbation and require them to describe to Grade 8 kids what
happens during vaginal, oral and anal sex as part of the new Life Orientation curriculum
that will be implemented in all schools from next year.
The SA Teachers Union has reportedly called the new material " grossly insensitive" and
advised teachers who do not agree with the content to boycott it.
Tracey Engelbrecht, the author of "The Girl Who Couldn't Say No: Memoir of a teenage
mom" - she's also a school facilitator on sexual health focusing on young people joins
us live from our studio for this interview.

26 May 2020 10:13 PM

Guest : Bishop-elect Joshua Louw | Bishop-elect of Table Bay at Anglican Church |


Will churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of religious gatherings be
allowed to operate in some form soon? South Africa will find out from President Cyril
Ramaphosa on Tuesday night.
Earlier this evening, Ramaphosa lead the call for a National Day of Prayer through a
televised broadcast at 7:30pm nationwide.
During the address, the president is also expected to provide an update on provisions
for the religious sector following a meeting of the National Coronavirus Command
Council which considered the inputs made by the sector in recent consultations with
interfaith leaders.
There have been calls from some churches to declare places of worship an essential
service from lockdown level 3.
Places of worship have been closed since lockdown began on 27 March.

Overcoming loneliness

26 May 2020 10:11 PM

Guests : Kate Solomons | internship-coordinator at TraumaClinic Foundation |
               Robyn Rosin | Clinical Psychologist|
          
The great irony is that as we become increasingly "connected"—on social media, video
calling, and messaging—we simultaneously feel increasingly lonely.
And even though we may use technology to feel more connected, it may be exactly
what’s leading us to feel lonely.
Though COVID-19 restrictions are easing, many people continue to feel lonely with
social distancing still in place and, for many, lockdown continuing.

How Covid-19 will affect student housing

26 May 2020 10:07 PM

Guest : Sean Kenealy | Director at STAG African |

The phased-in return of university students to campus under Level 3 lockdown has
highlighted the need for an updated approach to student housing.
In order to provide a controlled environment where hygiene protocols and residencebased screening can be enforced, on-campus accommodation needs to limit social
interaction, without losing the vitally important aspect of community.
Moving forward, the design of student accommodation will need to account for the
certainty of similar pandemics in the future.
