Shine, one of the Books & Beyond literacy partners invited the parents of the children on our English literacy programme, Grade 1 children, and Grades 2–4 children on our Year Beyond Programme.
Attendance was very encouraging from 112 confirmed responses received, between 90 and 100 parents attended!
The enthusiasm and positivity from this great group of parents made The Shine training team feel very energized and excited. These workshops aim to equip parents and caregivers with some basic skills and resources. This is to help them support their child’s learning journey at home.
Take-home packs were given to the parents which will assist them in continuing with improving their children’s development at home.
It was heartwarming and encouraging to see that parents realize how important it is for children to learn, read and write. We hope that this is the first of many future interactions between Sophakama and the parents in the Dunoon community.
