Thank You

In our last newsletter, I introduced you to Bongi.  I was desperately worried about how he would cope this year in an English school.  I knew that unless we could get him onto the "English Please!" programme the chance was great that he would end up back in an overcrowded township school, having to cope with a sense of huge personal failure. I was completely overwhelmed with your kind response to my request for donations. Your gifts came in from the Peninsula, from Cape Town, from other parts of South Africa, and even from England. I received so much money, that we are going to be able to help not just Bongi, but many children like him, this year at Fish HoeK Primary School. I imagine that many of your are parents and grandparents, and aware of the struggle that children in your family may face starting a new grade at the beginning of 2017 - you can know that your love and concern, through your gift to us, has gone beyond just your family, and that many little children like Bongi are having a good start to the year, thanks to your financial assistance.
 
Your generosity means we have increased our vision: we now want to replicate what we are doing at Fish Hoek Primary, to Simonstown. If you didn’t manage to give last time, but you still would like to, or if you would like to give again to English Please! - we would obviously love to hear from you. To give your gift which will give children like Bongi, the tuition he needs to cope in an English school, please click here. Just R150 from each of you will mean we can help the children in Simonstown primary as well, in 2017.  Thank you to all of you for extending yourselves to help children like Bongi! 
 
Wishing you all a super 2017,


Carol

Great Progress in Maths

  

The Maths Lab at Ukhanyo School continues to produce inspiring results - as shown by this graph of test results for 4th graders. The overall pass rate has shot up from only 17% to 64% by the third term of 2016. This is hugely encouraging for a subject area which has proven difficult to teach at a national level in South Africa.  more details
