Dynamic Classroom Management Workshop

Changing the mindset changes everything

  Over 1000 Children will be influenced by the 2 day workshops held at the end of November at the Lalapanzi Lodge in Sir Lowry’s Pass. The workshop was specifically engineered to help teachers structure and manage their classroom in the most efficient possible way.

Topics range from Child Psychology, the importance of instilling confidence and belief in the children and tips from the world’s greatest teachers on how to manage the classroom.

30 teachers from Primary schools in Sir Lowry’s Pass were in attendance and the exponential effect touches thousands of children in the area. The Workshop was presented by Mike D. Meacham with Marcos as technical director.

Project Activated is excited to be able to provide workshops and training of this nature as we believe that through education we can eradicate many of the issues that we are facing in the country. We would like to thank our faithful sponsors, volunteers and supporters that make this possible!

If you would like to sign up a school or a teacher for the event or become a sponsor there are some excellent exposure opportunities, please get in touch with Mike at 0741567370.

Supporting the Community

Project Activated has secured the donation of thousands of rands worth of books to the communities which we are currently focusing on. These are previously disadvantaged communities with a 95% black & coloured population.

Project Activated would like to thank ARCC for their donations of books which we were able to make available to the Sir Lowry’s pass and Graubow communities at their schools, Libraries and community centres. We wanted to thank Rolan McDonald principal of the Primary School in SLP for being our point man. We were also able to strategically distribute specifically related topics to youth who are able to make benefit of them designing CVs and Job hunting.

A great start…

On the 8th of December Samantha and Rita facilitated our pilot HIV workshop at the Sir Lowry´s Pass Community Centre. We gathered 10 community volunteers and organised a vibrant presentation. We used the method of active learning, using activities and interaction so they could experience better the concepts presented. Our goal is to train the group in HIV/Aids awareness and counselling, enabling them to address issues within their community, specially the youth.    Considering the difficulties in addressing points that clash with social and cultural barriers, their reaction was very positive and enthusiastic. ¨This is the best way to learn¨ – Geraldine, workshop attendee.

We expect to expand this experience and reach to a much bigger group with the help of the first attendees, and make a real impact in that community. 

If you are interested in having the same program in your community or sponsoring this endeavour in Sir Lowry’s Pass, please contact Samantha at 074 1402774.

A word of thanks…

   A big thank you to each of our sponsors and those of you who pledge so faithfully. We are truly humbled and thankful for your help and friendship. We would like to acknowledge that without your help we would not be here.

   You are as integral a part to our team as our volunteers and we want to convey a heartfelt thank you! Keep it up! You are doing an amazing job!
