THE Sappi KwaDukuza Resource Centre implemented a programme in mathematics, natural science and technology and materials development comprising practical and theoretical knowledge for Grade 8 and Grade 9 teachers.
The programme, sponsored by the Anglo American Chairman Fund, started in March and concluded with the final­ presentation last Wednesday.

The KwaDukuza Resource Centre worked with the Department of Education­ is senior education specialist, Mr R Rambrij, and Dr Z.H Mhlane, the director of MST and ICT, in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the programme.
Rambrij delivered the keynote address and spoke about the knowledge a teacher must have in the classroom and content of understanding their own work.
Dr Mhlane emphasised the need for professional learning communities (PLC), White paper 7 and the important role in ICT.

The programme yielded positive results in the following areas:

•planning and keeping well organised files with the relevant compliance documents;

•addressing issues of curriculum implementation;

•forging a strong bond of professional learning communities where teachers share content and methodology. This improved teacher confidence and enthusiasm;

•the improvement in the level of assessment through standardised common assessments; and

•empowering teachers to use technology in classrooms through strengthened IT skills and introduction to computerised programmes.

At the event the presentation was implemented through working and sharing a common goal with the programme director and Ashville Primary School principal, Mr M Janak.

Certificates of attendance and bags were given to teachers, principals and DOE officials as tokens of appreciation for being part of the programme.
In addition, the centre thanked the regional communication manager from Sappi Ltd, Mr E Masondo, for organising­ stationery for teachers who attended the workshops during the year.
