13 Jul Makro involvement day
On the 7th July 2016, Makro staff members attended the Holiday School Programme hosted at Houghton Primary. The Tomorrow Trust transports the learners out of their school in order to change the point of reference which is poverty and struggle and allow them to broaden their horizons as well as provide them with facilities that are conducive to learning. As well as engaging with volunteers enable the learners to receive one-on-one attention and builds social skills.
The main focus of Makro staff involvement was to get them engaged and interacting along with the learners in Numeracy, Literacy and Craft classes. We started the day with Numeracy activities that required group work. Each group had a Makro staff member and they had to work through mathematic sums and problem solving with the learners. In the Literacy class- learners had to construct sentences and assisted reading with comprehension questions.
