A marathon of aerobics will precede the keynote address by Premier Mme Thandi Modise that is expected to highlight the objectives of Batho Pele Fridays that are part of the Public Service Month and the advantage of observing healthier lifestyles.

In addition to free health and wellness screening for ailments like high blood pressure, cholesterol, Tuberculosis, HIV & Aids and cancer pap smear screening for female employees, employees will also participate in recreational and indigenous games and sporting codes like Soccer, Netball, Tennis, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Tenniquatte. Entertainment will be provided local artists

The fun-filled programme for the day's activities is to be celebrated under a strict code of no-alcoholic drinks for the entire day. The programme hosted in partnership and sponsored by Government Employees Medical Aid Scheme (GEMS) will end with a price awards for participants and winning teams.

Public Service Month is an integral part of the Batho Pele movement aimed at instilling and/or rebuilding good ethics, morale and pride in public servants to encourage the culture of providing quality services.

The objective of the programme for the month is to promote inter-governmental relations by encouraging integrated approaches in rendering public services to effectively utilise limited government resources for improved results.
