Ngilandi visit

Posted on May 19, 2009

Martina Jordaan's group op civil engineering students determined how they want to upgrade the school's library and also motivated 2 MEd(Learning support, guidance and counselling) students met with teachers to plan an action research intervention to build capacity to teach in English (as additional language of teaching and learning) where the majority of the learners entering Grade 7 are unable to read, write or speak in English.
The project has thus increased (as is characteristic of a participatory action research design) to include 2 additional foci (last two bullets).

The school has changed since our previous visit in February - due to heightened levels of poverty the DoE is offering a food programme at the school, in the grade 9 group 87% of the children have lost at least one parent, and a handful live in child-headed households, the school has had no access to fresh water since March.

I would once again like to thank all concerned for supporting this project to continue.
