Programmes for 2017: The Bitou 10 Interschool Magazine
The National Lotteries Commission has provided the Foundation with some funding for an Interschool Magazine. Learners were asked to submit content including art work, stories, poetry, songs, jokes, dedications etc. Schools formed editorial groups of four learners to select, edit and type the submissions for the magazine.
The Magazine gives learners the opportunity to express themselves in a creative way, helps to improve their reading and writing skills and they can read what other learners from their neighbouring schools have written.
Although funding for this project is minimal, meaning that we will only be able to produce one issue for this year and a few copies for the participating schools, we believe that this issue will be an enriching and rewarding experience for the teachers and the learners.
