A new disadvantage for the children in Namatala slum is being unable to access the government’s TV-based learning programmes during the Covid 19 lockdown. To overcome the problem, teachers are making home-learning visits to the Primary 7 learners, who are due to take their primary leaving exam at the end of the year. Parents of these children can’t afford to buy TV sets or even pay electricity bills.
This is helping to keep pupils engaged with study and keep up with those learning from televised tuition. The director of studies at Child of Hope Primary School has weighed in to play his part alongside the teachers; seen here teaching Maths to P7 pupil Tarik.
The teachers, committed to getting the best out of their pupils, are providing all our children with home-learning materials during school closure.
