Getting ready for exams and revising past question papers

 

Im so happy and excitted to announce that since the 18th of October 2010 Nyanga learners have been attending every day home work sessions and this will continues until we are all done with exams. Starting from 15h00 until 17h30 Grade 9,10 and 11’s gather here to prepare for exams, while interacting with each other and having discussion groups.We are going through past question papers and the answer series books.

So anyone who is available during the week is welcome to come in and assist our learners.

A new volunteer running sexual health workshops

 

What a great time to get our learners educated and aware of their sexuaity and safe measures so that they do not contract HIV/Aids. As much as the buzz is around Exams and preparation of exams  but the Nyanga and Makhaza learners are taking an oppotunity of being informed and also share  their thoughts about sexuality and HIV/Aids so that after exams people remain safe. As we all know we are approaching , the holidays and many kids will be waking up to doing nothing and in many townships this coming season means “party party party” shebeens will be packed more than ever and girls are taken advantage of, during this time.

After school learners have been gathering at their Ikamva Youth Branch and taking part in a series of workshops prepared by Susan Parker from the UK who has a great back ground in HIVand sexual education.Susan n has studied Health Studies in London Metropolitan University and her aim is “to devise, design and deliver training which will support the reduction of sexual health inequalities and the promotionof a society that is inclusive, enabling and empowering for everyone”

This is inline with one of our  core programme  as Ikamva Youth to make sure our learners are aware of their status and know their sexual rights.
