In conjunction with the Gauteng Provincial Education Department (GPED), we identified the first 5 schools in Atteridgeville for 2009:
The LEGO Education kits were delivered on 22nd July 2009 and initial training was conducted at Lemoshanang Teacher Centre on 25th July 2009. Two Vuleka schools, St Mark's and St Martin's, were also chosen to pilot the project; initial training was conducted at Vuleka on 3rd August 2009
◄ 18th & 24th of August - Follow up sessions with all 5 township schools. Happy to report that the LEGO kits are being used in the classrooms at all 5 schools. Teachers and learners are all very motivated.
◄ 21st of September - Presentation of the project to 40 LEGO employees.
◄ 24th of September - We were thrilled to be able to do the presentation to Kjeld Kristiansen ( Owner of LEGO )
◄ 27th to 30th of October - Next round of follow-up sessions. We visited all the classes from Grade R to Grade 7 at Makgatho Primary School to see how the learners were doing. These pictures speak for themselves.
◄ Attended the year-end Prize Giving at Vuleka. These learners have done so well at technology this year. Many received full bursaries to study at Private Schools in 2010.
