ST MARTIN de Porres School hosted guests from Switzerland last week.

The Swiss facilitators, Michal and Alex Gablinger, held a series of workshops on a new international programme that the school is to adopt - Mathis - and donated some academic resources for pupils.

Foundation phrase HOD Sister Staff Dlamini said it was an honour to host the facilitators as the school would benefit greatly from their programme.

“The Mathis programme uses pictures instead of numbers as a way of learning mathematics. This has been very beneficial for our pupils as they also get to learn a variety of other subjects, including linguistics and life skills at the same time as mathematics.

“We thank Rowland Wagner who organised the facilitators for his continued support of our school,” said Dlamini.
