Talhado

talhadoOur former State President Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” With just such a thought in mind members of the church started a pre-primary school in the township some 10 years ago. It now has an annual intake of 100 children who are prepared over a 2-year course by qualified teachers for entry into Primary School. The lessons follow the mandated curriculum. In addition the children are given a daily meal.

The school is equipped with a media centre and each child receives computer tuition.

In 2012 a Montessori class was introduced and we now have a fully qualified teacher and another teacher who is undergoing training.

The school has recently installed a Broadband internet connection and plans to offer a homework/project facility to older children on a supervised basis.

If you feel that you can assist in this project in any way please contact Les Moore – 082 556 1050.
