Saturday 21st November was the last Parents’ meeting of the year at the Masiphumelele branch.

Besides reporting on learners’ numbers, attendance, kick-outs and extra-murals, we presented the prospects for 2016.

In fact, the Computer Literacy programme will be implemented since January. In order to build learners’ ability to communicate in English, the Book Club, the English FUNdamentals and the preparation for the ANAs will also be run next year.

Regarding the Grade 11s and 12s the focus of the meeting was on liaising with the parents to organise next year learners’ support around the mentoring programme and tertiary application process. Some Grade 11s (see attached picture) came to present their career aspirations through their Vision Boards.

As the learner number will increase from 95 learners to 119 in Masi next year, we also called for recruiting learners and tutors.


Finally 2 parents have been nominated and chosen to be Parent’s representatives for 2016.

We are all ready for the new year!!
