Covid-19 Conundrum
Published: May 3, 2020

Hoping everyone in your house and home is well and determined to fight on. We have done fairly well as South Africa.

As I hear so may “experts” screaming The elderly; The elderly are at risk – extremely annoying and a negative message being sent into the universe – I just remember what Mahatma Bhuddh said many 1000s of years ago. Every morning we are born again. What we do today matters most. Obstacles don’t block the path. They are the path.

This present moment is demanding of me, is teaching me deep and intense involvement to change direction for all our teachers and learners through each of my trainers in all its dimensions. Poverty of course raises its ugly head and dictates. Perhaps now, the powers to be will awaken that a nation simply can only be built if all our children and young people participate and not fragmented strategies for the few.

There is no returning to how it was. Success and survival will now depend entirely on how we rose to the challenge taking good counsel from those who have gone before.

It has been an intensely busy month, ensuring that we make our best effort to bring our disadvantaged learners into the fold. As the month went by, it became obvious that proposals will have to be added, reshaped – Multidimensional Digital intervention will have to be implemented. Paradoxically, rather than always theorising, it is a very real opportunity for us all to know, understand correct the exact situation with our teachers and learner’s access to digital learning.


There have been many such teaching moments at the Maths Centre for me, many curved balls that tried to knock me off my feet, borne of unfathomable and painful attack – public donations being drained into greed and absorbed into conflicting arguments of self- aggrandisement of egotistic people. Through fair weather and foul, I have done my best to return to my sole purpose for existence – serving children and young people – clarity and my committed compassion has never left me – I am still standing, trying to turn this adversity into an opportunity.

Would love to know how are you all.

Today – my footsteps feel very heavy —
