Welcome to the After School Treasure Box

We collaborated with the Youth & After School Programme Office (DCAS), ASSITEJ SA, and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation to create this central treasure box of resources from the 4-pillars of After School programmes.

Click on the thumbnails below to explore all the activities from After School programmes!

These After School resources are not a substitute for the CAPS-aligned academic content made available on national and provincial government websites; but rather an extra-curricular and extended-learning compliment to the plethora of curricular resources already out there.

We value the contributions of everyone in the sector in order to grow the number of quality resources on this portal. If you have a useful resource you’d like to share or if you have any questions about the treasure box, please contact us.

Treasure Box Activity Packs

We recognise that whilst our Treasure Box hosts a variety of enriching and educational activities for learners of all ages, many families do not have access to internet and smart-phone devices. That is why we partnered with Florence and Watson to create printable activity packs sourced from the incredible After School programme resources in our Treasure Box.

We partnered with organisations that reach large communities or that work with many schools – mainly in Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal, and Gauteng – to distribute the activity packs.
