Training workshops for Heidedal parents

The Research Institute for Education Planning (RIEP) at the University of the Free State (UFS) trained a group of Grade 00 teachers in Heidedal on the Family Math & Family Science programme.

The aim of the training was to empower teachers as facilitators to assist parents through training workshops to achieve further development of their children in the sciences, mathematics, and technology. As part of the training the teachers had to arrange a community workshop, that was assessed by RIEP.

During a certificate handover ceremony that was attended by the principals involved, the teachers and personnel of RIEP, were from the left Ms Mary Carolus (teacher at Heidedal Wieg who was trained through the Family Math & Family Science programme), Ms Elizna Prinsloo (UFS co-ordinator of the programme) and Prof Jack van der Linde (Director of RIEP).
