Our impact and stories
Finsch Diamond Mine (FDM) together with the Maths Centre of South Africa recently hosted the first of the finals of the Maths Science and Technology (MST) Challenge for Techno Girls and Boys at Daniëlskuil High School. This follows the launch of the programme in the Kgatelopele Local Municipal area late last year. The schools that form part of the programme is Kuilsville High School and Daniëlskuil High School.
Maths Centre Western Cape advocacy campaign, Share and Shine took place on Friday, 24 October 2014 at Protea Park Primary. The Share and Shine event was in collaboration with District North. The objective of the event was for teachers from 18 schools from District North to share Mathematics content by exhibiting and demonstrating various topics in the content areas. Best practices were shared in the form of lesson planning, addressing pertinent topics, planning of learner-centred activities, planning assessment and the use of resources. This was also the request from many educators in the District.
When I started attending the ECD level 4 accredited certificate programme offered by Maths Centre, I did not know anything concerning children except that I was to look after them, teach them songs, rhymes and games, things like wild animals, days of the week etc.
