Seabe Secondary School under the district of Dr JS Moroka Municipality, received eLearning Tablets from Ubuhlebuzile eLearning programme on Tuesday 19 April 2022. The programme has been going around schools in Mpumalanga, handing over learning tablets to grade 12 pupils.

The MEC of Education in the province has shown determination to grow the standard of learning in schools around the province, giving learners access to equip themselves with electronic learning material. Since the start of Covid-19, schools had to resort to online learning, catching up with the curriculum even with many holidays in the country.

The Ubuhlebuzile eLearning programme has been working around the whole province. Schools that have already received the tablet are: Pungutsha Secondary, Seabe Secondary, Mabothe.

In Bushbuck Ridge it’s Bushbuckridge Secondary, Ngwaritsane Secondary, Mmabatho Mokoena Secondary, Magabotse Secondary, Diwiti Secondary, Freddy Sithole High and Mkhweyantaba High.
