Successful scholarship programme!
150 grade 8 pupils from three different schools within Bushbuckridge were awarded with certificates of excellence following their participation in the English Micro-scholarship programme, hosted by Reata Services at Mathibela High School on Tuesday, the 16th of April 2019.
It was an entertainment-filled afternoon as parents got an opportunity to watch their children playing around with their impeccable language skills through poetry, music, dance and other activities, duly benefitted from the short course, in the presence of representatives from the Mathibela Tribal Authority, Department of Education, Bushbuckridge Local Municipality and the United States Embassy.
“We do English language programmes in southern Africa. Normally we promote teacher development training, and in this instance we offered this afterschool access programme for the learners, and it is also meant to supplement their current curriculum, and what’s even more exciting is that we go after 21st century skills,” Kevin McCaughey from the Regional English office of the US Embassy said.
