Learning to teach

Parents Katie Sheldon, Lucille Hermanus, Shanaaz Anthony, Kim Anthony, Sonja Pietersen and Gail Josephs.

Parents from Square Hill Primary School in Retreat took part in a six-week Wordworks programme to help their children and others learn how to read and write at foundation phase. Wordworks is an NPO that specialises in teaching parents, teachers and tutors how to incorporate everyday playing into an opportunity for children to hone their literacy and numeracy skills. Parents are also empowered to support learning in the home through a home-school partnership programme.
