Comedy stars Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are cast opposite each other in this wildly funny take on adult education. In the hopes of upping his salary in order to hold on to his high-earning fiancée, Teddy Walker (Hart) enrols in teacher Carrie’s (Haddish) class to obtain his GED. While Hart is as fast-talking and wired as always, it is Haddish, re-united with Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee, whose skilful delivery and comedic timing really shine.

Need a break from studying for exams? M-Net’s Sunday night block buster, Night School, is just the extra-curricular you need.
Back to school
After an accident at work costs him his job, Teddy figures it’s time to throw caution to the wind and some books in his backpack and head back to school so he can improve his employment prospects. But school isn’t the walk in the park he thought it would be. For starters, the principal is Teddy’s high school nemesis and the teacher is quite the unorthodox educator. Starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish, M-Net’s Sunday Night Blockbuster, Night School, is a comedy of errors and second chances that’s just the perfect excuse to put down the books for a while.

Did you know? Studies have shown that brains work better when they’re relaxed. (Look it up, Dad – it’s science.) Studying for exams is serious business, and it’s easy to end up with a whole lot of free-roaming stress in the house at this time of year. But it doesn’t have to be all work and no play. These awesome shows are perfect for a study break. (Plus, they’re “educational” – honest Mom!)
To be the best you have to learn from the best, so they say. That’s why SA’s top music stars are nurturing the future of the music industry in The Voice SA. Talent alone is not enough to crack the notoriously tough music industry, and with Lira, Riana, Francois and Riky lending their expertise to these singing hopefuls, we wouldn’t be surprised if the top five contestants walk away with record deals. And behind the glitz and the glamour, viewers will get to learn a few lessons about working towards your goals, taking constructive criticism, and always upping your game.
Cooking (with) class
This businesswoman can teach us a thing or two about cooking. Juggling motherhood (she has four little ones under the age of ten) and being a chef with her own show on Food Network, Siba has earned her colours and can hold her own with global food trends. From Siba’s Table to Siba’s Adventures Johannesburg, it would be a grave error not to attend her cooking masterclass because there’s a lot we can learn from this celebrity chef – about cooking and life!

Who would brave the harsh elements on a remote island for a gruelling psychological and physical test of wills, with cameras watching their every move and the whole country watching their every triumph and mistake? Twenty-one brave South Africans who set sail (or rather, flew) to Samoa in the South Pacific for the chance to be a millionaire – that’s who! Relying on nature to provide their food and shelter, these contestants can school us on how to survive on just the bare minimum, and most importantly, how to be the last man (or woman) standing when “the tribe has spoken”.
School your body along with your mind. After all, Mom, you want well-rounded individuals, don’t you? Which brings us to the Roland Garros, otherwise known as The Tennis French Open. Current champions Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep will be hoping to hold on to their singles titles and teach a few of their opponents a lesson or two about losing gracefully (or less than gracefully) and what it takes to be a champion.
