Let’s Play

SuperSport’s flagship social investment initiative, the programme is an implementation partner of school sport for the Department of Basic Education and is now active in thousands of schools nationwide, reaching over a million children annually.

The Let’s Play Schools Physical Education Challenge

In partnership with the Department of Basic Education, Sport and Recreation South Africa, the Physical Education Institute of South Africa and Unicef SA, SuperSport launched the biggest school sport initiative of its kind – the Let’s Play Schools Physical Education Challenge – to celebrate reaching its 10-year milestone in 2016. The primary objective of this challenge is to reinforce the instruction of curriculum-oriented physical education and promote physical activity in all schools. Let’s Play assists the Department of Basic Education with its school infrastructure project, together with partners Hitachi Construction Machinery and Builders. Eight multi-purpose artificial fields have been built at selected primary schools to date with another three to be built at beneficiary schools in 2018.

Through MiM, CSI projects include an extensive internship programme, where young producers work with industry experts for handson experience. The MiM Career Expo was launched in August 2014. M-Net partnered with tertiary and financial institutions, as well as production companies, to give learners a complete view of the industry. Attendees were also made aware of the variety of jobs available in the industry, such as presenting, acting, camerawork and directing, giving them valuable insights from industry experts and practical exposure to several disciplines.
