GrandWest assists Tafelsig

GrandWest hopped on board to assist approximately 240 Grade 8 learners from AZ Berman High School in Tafelsig who struggled with mathematics.

A statement reads that GrandWest was informed that only five out of approximately 240 learners from the Mitchell’s Plain school had passed maths.

The National Department of Education has set the pass mark to 40%, and this was the highest mark achieved in the entire grade.

To assist the school, GrandWest supported a 12-week Saturday mathematics class, conducted by teachers from The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Schools Enrichment Centre (AIMSSEC).

AIMSSEC is a not-for-profit organisation that provides professional development courses for mathematics teachers, particularly improving subject knowledge and empowering teachers from disadvantaged rural and township communities,” the statement reads.

The results improved, with the top 10 learners getting between 88% and 73%.

On Saturday 8 June they were acknowledged at an award ceremony. The Western Cape Department of Education was represented by the acting head of curriculum of Metro South, Lorraine Bailey, while Mervyn Naidoo, general manager of GrandWest, presented the top 10 learners with awards.

“We are so proud of these learners, especially those in the top 10,” says Genevieve Smith, sustainability manager at GrandWest. “It’s wonderful to see how these learners grabbed the opportunity they were given to improve their results.”
