Education at VOH Burundi
Each day at VOH Burundi our teachers and volunteers are busy helping our students with extra after school lessons. These lessons go deeper into the curriculum to help the students understand what they have learned at school. The children are divided into groups according to their grades. In addition to the extra instruction, the children are also helped with any questions that they may have about their home work assignments. We have seen a big improvement in the children’s performance at school since these extra lessons were started.
World Teacher’s Day
VOH Chongwe teachers took part in World Teachers’ Day events last week. World Teachers’ Day celebrates the significant contribution that teachers make in the lives of their students. Villages of Hope is thankful for all of the dedicated men and women who have committed their lives to investing in the futures of orphans and vulnerable children in Africa!
VOH Kenya PTA Meeting
The end of the school year at VOH Kenya is coming fast! The last day of classes is in less than one month on November 14th. We had our last PTA meeting this week, where parents and guardians gathered together along with the school administration to hear about ideas for next year. Everyone was also told about the overall academic performance of the school, and the upcoming graduation ceremony of the Kindergartens as they enter grade one. Those who attended were happy with the communication between school and home, and appreciated being able to add their comments, suggestions or questions and be a part of their child’s school life!
New Ministry of Education Literacy Program
The Zambian government under the Ministry responsible for education has introduced a new program for reading instruction. In this new literacy program, children will be taught how to read in the language used in the area where their families are from.
The implementation of this program requires parent or guardian participation and all schools are encouraged to work with people from their communities.
Today at VOH Kitwe, we were visited by Mr. Zulu, the PTA representative. He came to monitor and observe the implementation of the new literacy program and was given an opportunity to sit in the class and observe the literacy lessons. Mr. Zulu was very impressed with the way the lessons were presented and with the pupil’s response!
