Four competitons for South African teachers and their classes

Submitted by Fiona Beal
It has come to my notice that there are a few exciting competition available for South African teachers and learners. The first one, a Skype competition is a world wide competition and could include High School classes. More information is available at http://education.skype.com The next three seem more suited to the Primary School learner and are advertised on our South African classroom site http://e-classroom.co.za/. Why not take a look and get your class to participate?
