We are very proud of our Teacher assistant, Ms Londi Mhlongo, who has received her Certificate of Competence against the following SAQA registered qualification.
National Diploma : Early Childhood Development NQF Level 5.
Londi has been employed at Makabongwe since 1st June 2012.
One of our founder members, Auntie Liz Ross, “spotted” this young lady and recognised a rare talent in her so we employed her as a teacher assistant.
Londi has a natural way with children and is passionate about teaching.
We saw good potential in this young lady and managed to secure a sponsor to assist her with her 3 year diploma.
Below is some delightful feedback from her mentor and Director of Caversham Institute, Mrs Jabu Mtheku.
“My dear Theresa, you should have been there!! you have never seen someone so, so excited, so happy! Of all the graduates, she is the only one who literally danced, I mean danced when she was hooded, she could not contain herself. She caused such havoc (good) when she arrived and saw that gown and mortar board and could not contain herself! It was so good to watch!!
WELL DONE Londi, we are incredibly proud of you.
You are a good teacher assistant and will make an excellent teacher one day when you get your own class allocated to you.
It’s been a pleasure watching you grow both in confidence and knowledge to become a highly valued member of the Makabongwe team.
I LOVE your photos. They capture the joy of the occasion far better than any words can express.
Your Gogo must have been bursting with pride.
