Educators were given a boost recently when about 28 of them across the Foundation and Intermediate/Senior Phases, attended their first course presented by Tholisa from UCT.
This first English course – Introduction to Strategies for Teaching Reading in the Primary school – was well received. Silverleaf Primary also nominated 3 representatives to attend the training.
Feedback was very positive. The session was interactive and educators were engaged and enthusiastic throughout.
This was one of two sessions (3 hours per session) for this first English course, the next one being on the 25th of October. Each educator who attended both sessions will receive a certificate as recognition for attendance.
This begins a three-year plan between UCT and Sophakama Primary to assist in supporting educators with their self-development plan, specifically in English and Maths.
We look forward to sharing more news as these courses are presented at the school.
