Thousands of South Africans are praising Mr Rimbault from Bergvliet High School for teaching his Life Orientation class how to change a tyre!


Bergvliet, South Africa (08 June 2021) – There has always been a debate about the Life Orientation lessons taught during high school. Many adults that have graduated from high school have said the subject lacks actual life skills.

Last year May, we did a feature for parents to give inspiration on what life skills to teach their children during lockdown homeschooling. This included things like negotiating employment contracts and raises, taxes, budgeting and savings, as well as changing a tyre and checking oil and water in a car. These simple life skills go a lot further than carrying a 2kg bag of flour around for a week.

Mr Rimbault from Bergvliet High School is being praised for taking his Grade 11 Life Orientation class out to the parking lot and giving them a lesson on how to change a tyre. This is an easy life skill that you can learn at any age. It is vital to know, especially because South African roads can be dangerous.

The school shared a Facebook post about the lesson, and thousands of South Africans have praised Mr Rimbault for his efforts to teach such a valuable skill.

If you could have learned a valuable life skill at school, what would it have been? Let us know in the comment section.
