News from some of our Projects
LETCEE had our Graduation Ceremony recently. The function was held in the Greytown Town Hall and was well attended. We had a guest speaker from Dundee, who delivered a wonderful speech on the importance of early education and the roles that these women will now fulfill. One of the courses we offer, is accredited training in Early Childhood Development (ECD); a two year qualification for a Further Education and Training Certificate in ECD. This is a nationally recognised certificate on the NQF level 4. We currently have 252 registered students for this course.On Thursday 15 June 2017, 97 of LETCEE’s students graduated and received this national certificate. It was a day of singing, dancing and joyous celebration as the families of these students attended and supported the graduates. We wish to congratulate all the graduates with this wonderful achievement! Your hard work, persistence and commitment have paid off. Now you can go into your communities to provide quality early education for our kids.
Rest in peace, Mamkhulu
When Charmayne retired last year, we wrote this farewell story for her. We thought it appropriate to share with you now. Read our farewell story here.
Trip to Germany
Sne Masuku, Matimatolo's Mamahambi, and Annika Hayward went to Germany for September to learn more about ECD for children with disabilities. They did a two-week internship at Vogelsang Kindergarten in Osnabruck and also visited other similar projects in Northwestern Germany.
This was a great experience and they learnt great hands-on techniques and management strategies for ensuring optimal learning despite special needs.
We look forward to hearing more about their trip and will share with you!
