Afterschool programme gets a facelift
The 2016 school year started with the Jujurha teachers enthusiastic about giving the afternoon support programme a bit of a “boost”. We’d become concerned by the declining attendance towards the end of last year. New educational and recreational activities were added. After the recrutiment drive, we registered 45 learners from NoOfisi Primary – the nearby Government School – a significant increase when compared to the 18 children we had in 2015. The new and interesting activities introduced by the Jujuhra teachers include: drama, traditional praise singing, Chess, and Table Tennis. What is exciting for these learners, who range from Grades 1 to 7 is that they can choose any activity that they are interested in. The activities are not Grade based but are designed to appeal to the various interests and aptitudes of the different children participating.
