Silikamva Academic BootcampCommon Good
During the July school holidays, Common Good joined up with XL Education and Silikamva High, to hold an ‘academic bootcamp’ for Grade 12 learners. They received four days of intensive tuition aimed at preparing them for their Mock exams and, ultimately, their Matric finals.
The hard work paid off: pre- and post-assessments showed an average improvement of 22%! Many learners finished camp asking for further opportunities to invest in their academic performance. This led to a Saturday school programme that ran all the way up to the Mock exams.
We are so grateful for the educators who came from around the country – some from as far as Limpopo! – to share their expertise and to encourage the Silikamva class of 2019 to look to the future with a sense of hope and purpose.
