The events which occur during early childhood has a lasting impact and will affect a child’s growth and development throughout his or her life. We have identified various ways in which to ensure that the children in Bitou get the best out of their early childhood experience.
Too many of our learners from deeply deprived backgrounds find it difficult to cope with the educational curriculum in the Foundation Phase (Grades 1-3) and on average students in the local schools obtain poor Literacy and Mathematic scores. The objective of this programme is to prepare the children adequately for formal schooling.
Mathematics Specialists provide on-the-job training and facilitation meetings and workshops to teachers within a specific phase: Foundation Phase Grades R – 3; Intermediate Phase Grades 4-6; Senior Phase Grades 7-9, in 9 schools in the Bitou area.
Scifest Africa allows South Africa and the world’s leading scientists the opportunity to share their work, to make Science accessible to all, to network with one another, to provide career guidance and to act as role models for our youth.
Many of our programmes include Professional Development. We focus on supporting and developing teachers skills, knowledge and expertise within their area of teaching. School leaders and managers have been empowered by experts such as Professor Jonathan Jansen.
