Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Rallim Preparatory School, on the West Coast outside Cape Town, will host a virtual open day for prospective parents and pupils using drones.
The "IT-biased" private pre-preparatory and preparatory school first opened last year, and features nine hectares of grounds surrounding its R120 million campus.
It promises to prepare kids for jobs that do not yet exist, with coding taught from grade one.
The virtual open day, scheduled for August 15, is due to feature what the school describes as a "fly-by drone experience", which will stream live on the school’s Facebook page and its YouTube channel.
Prospective parents and learners will also get the chance to interact with teachers and students.
“Viewers will be able to ask the Rallim kids questions about their experiences and this will be live, followed by parents' voice," said media consultant Gwen Sparks.
