Grade O at The Little School
Grade 0 Teacher Shauneen Nurcombe-Thorne
I arrived in Eswatini in July of 2014.
I have a passion for teaching the young child and qualified at the University of Pretoria in 2001 with a B Primarty Degree. I have since taught at various pre-primary and primary schools, covering ages 3 to 9, as well as special educational needs. I enjoy finding new ways to make the learning experience more fun and therefore more effective.
News Letter July 2022
We are now in the middle of the academic year and our Grade 7s are seriously preparing for the Eswatini Primary Certificate exams in November.
In spite of the Covid interruptions and the political upheavals, our 1921 Grade 7s did very well, achieving 10 merits, 1 first and 4 second class passes out of the 15 pupils who wrote the exam, which had been postponed to March of this year. These results were largely due to the fact that throughout the lock downs, our teachers never stopped teaching. We taught continuously, using internet classes or hard copy notes for those children who did not have access to the internet.
But it has not been all hard work. We had a pyjama day during Book Week, (photos below) which proved a lot of fun. And our sports teams went to athletic outings and hockey matches. The Drama Club is working hard preparing to put on the musical “Annie”, hopefully in September.
Our toilet block has been beautifully renovated, and we have facilities for special needs children and wheel-chair friendly paths.
