A NEW Educational channel initiated by the Ministry of General Education has started showing on the Zambia National Broadcasting Cooperation (ZNBC) – Zambia’s national TV station.
The channel is meant to benefit secondary school learners. Schools have been closed since early last month in the wake of the Coronavirus and the COVID-19 which has infected close to two million people and killed over 100,000 globally.
The minister said the channel would become operational on Monday, April 13 and would run from 07:30 hours to 20:00 hours daily.
“To begin with, the channel will in the initial stage focus on secondary education as we develop materials for early childhood education primary as well as other education levels and subjects. The channel will also look at issues affecting the education sector, Mabumba said.
He appealed to learners to take advantage of the opportunity and make use of the materials going to their homes through television and radio channels.
“You now have locally produced educational programmes done by Zambian teachers under the revised curriculum to help your studies,” he said.
