FIRST PARENT’S WORKSHOP AT MAKABONGWE

FRIDAY 6th MARCH 2020

As a result of a brain storming session with the staff, many innovative and creative ideas were formulated and presented for discussion and action.

Various staff members were mandated with specific tasks and encouraged to implement their ideas as soon as possible,

One of the ideas presented by Mrs Jamali, Ms Madlala and Ms Dada, was to host Parent’s Workshops once a term where parents could come to school and enjoy some networking, idea sharing and practical ways to assist their children with various learning and life skills.

We hosted our first workshop on FRIDAY 6th MARCH 2020

About 30 parents attended which was very encouraging – we even had some dads join in.

The focus was on STORY TELLING, HOW TO MAKE PUZZLES, and MAKING YOUR OWN PUZZLES

The workshop team made 3 groups of parents each focusing on a different skill.

I heard and saw some very animated and enthusiastic budding story tellers.

The parents making their own puzzles were clearly enjoying cutting and pasting from magazines choosing the pictures they wanted to convert into puzzles.

Some parents had themselves never grown up doing puzzles at home or school and enjoyed this new found activity eager to learn new skills to share with their children.

All in all it was a very successful workshop.

Thank you to the WORKSHOP team – Mrs Jamali, Ms Madlala ad Ms Dada – for their preparation and coaching.

Watch this space for the next workshop…….
