The 2015 Social Studies Fair to be held in Francistown has received a shot in the arm from academic institution, IDM, whose sponsorship is estimated to be over P70,000. Chris Moiketsi of IDM says the 2015 Social Studies Fair to be held at the weekend will see junior and senior secondary schools from five regions compete for national honours.

Of the more than P70,000-worth of support, P30,000 will go toward prizes.  Organised under the auspices of the Botswana Social Studies Association (BOSSA) the Social Studies Fair national finalists are drawn from the five regions of SEKGAKWE (southern, Kgatleng, and Kweneng), South, North-West, North-East and Central.

Moiketsi says IDM’s participation was a response to a call by the Ministry of Education to participate in the Adopt-A-School initiative.
