The Grade 7 learners are currently a part of the CHP Ake Sikhule Leadership programme. This provides them with opportunities to develop their leadership skills in a number of ways. As part of this programme, they take part in a CHP ‘Buddy Programme’.
Each Grade 7 learner is allocated two Grade R ‘buddies’. This forms part of their duties towards their Ake Sikhule award and will further assist in the development of their leadership skills.
The Grade 7 learners visit their ‘little buddies’ weekly, in an allocated time slot. During this time, they play educational games, use the iPads together, sing songs, read stories and much more. They are also encouraged to spend time with their buddy outside of this allocated time where possible.
We have experienced great success with this programme and have seen the benefit it has on both the Grade R and 7 learners
