Education students from our university descended on schools in Bloemfontein during the last two days. Approximately 520 first-year education students, divided into two groups, are visiting schools in the city to get a broader teaching experience. The first-year students are visiting schools in town, Heidedal and Mangaung. Their visit coincides with our Faculty of Education’s annual diversity workshop for first-year students, where they will address topics such as discrimination, prejudice and stereotypes.

The first group of first-year students who visited schools, gave feedback about their experiences at the diversity workshop held on our Bloemfontein Campus. The students were addressed by Prof. Dennis Francis, Dean of our Faculty of Education. He told them that a Kovsie graduate is somebody who is people-centred. Prof. Francis urged the first-year students to let go of prejudice and asked them to reclaim the dignity of the oppressed.
