Well done to the staff at our De Hoop Dagsorg centre for being awarded the Nadia Kamies Trophy for Best Planning and Consistent Application of an ECD (Early Childhood Development) Programme at the recent Masikhule End of Year function.
The event recognises the ECD Centres that excel in the application of the Masikhule training and mentorship programmes, despite their challenging environments.
We are thrilled that Simonsig’s De Hoop Dagsorg centre can shine as a proud example to fellow colleagues and communities as a testament to what dedication and a lot of hard work can accomplish.
“The De Hoop Staff deserve this trophy for their team work and for ensuring that, throughout the year, they consistently had an interesting ECD program running in the centre” says Else de Jong, their Masikhule Mentor. “The teachers made excellent use of the Masikhule Teacher Resource Library and used the material provided to make wonderfully child-friendly and creative Theme Tables, as well as adding value to their lessons. Their planning is always up-to-date with interesting activities planned for the children, thus ensuring a solid and varied ECD program.”
Thank you Danelle, Carol, Susan, Wilhelmina, Jo-Anne and Genine for a job well done this year. We are very proud of you!
