In a quest to help parents become more involved in their children’s school work, NPO Wordworks have completed another seven-week skills training programme at Hillwood Primary School in Lavender Hill. The aim of the programme is to educate parents on how to assist children with reading and homework. Parents graduated from the programme on Tuesday April 9. Wordworks 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.
