Learner support Ms Naki

Ms Naki is our learner support and also a past student of Toise SSS. This is Ms Naki’s story:

I am a young enthusiastic lady that  love working with people and loves to help people achieve success.

I am a outgoing person that loves to with groups of individuls.

In 2019 In the heart of all the challenges of life and Covid19 I became a volunteer at Toise and assist in the computer lab. I understand the importance of technology as I a former student was given the tools by Sifunda Kunye Educational project’s in 2011 through Computer literacy course to know the basic computer skills I needed.

I am currently volunteering my time in the lab to assist and equip learners with the same skills that was a life changer when it came to technology in my life.

My main role at school is a learner support agent, I deal mainly with learner behavior and life in general.

My purpose is to furfill my duties and volunteer in our school lab to help learners in anyway I can.

My confidence with computers was directly impacted by Sifunda Kunye Educational project. Toise SSS is my past High school and my passion for education and our youth started here. I am grateful do be part of Toise SSS and Sifunda Kunye project.

Helping hand foundation donation to our pupils

Helping hand foundations is a youth led organization which aims to address social issues in rural schools. This organization emanates from an idea of ensuring that school learners are not academically affected by their poor backgrounds and lack of resources.

Helping hands want to bridge the gap of ensuring those challenges that hinder learners in excelling  are dealt with.

They want to ensure a brighter future to all learners by offering a helping hand to those in need, empowering them for inclusive education.

 

We want to thank helping hand for donating school uniforms to learners at our school.

2020

November 2020

This year has proven to be a great challenge for the entire world. With so much at stake and so many lives at risk this is definitely the year that will go down in the history books as the year that changed the world.

With the year coming to an end and the grades have attempted to make up for lost time, we wish all grades including the class of 2020 all the best for their finals.

Our school including our partner Sifunda Kunye has done everything to ensure safety protocols are in place for this year to do our part in curbing the spread of Covid 19.

Hoping that 2021 will be a COVID19 free year and live would resume slightly more normal.

Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and a prosperous 2021.
