Sibongile's Pre-School

I went to visit a couple of the preschools in the Edendale area which have teachers being trained by Phakamisa Pietermaritzburg. Here are some pictures of Sibongile's Pre-School.

This is the outside of her home, where she holds the school. She made the mud bricks herself.

Here she is teaching the children - it's a pity they all turned to look at the camera, they were nicely involved in the lesson.

You can see some of the Phakamisa materials - the shapes and colours. The letters on the wall are not from Phakamisa - but there is a lot of pressure on pre-schools from the parents to teach the children to write their names.
 This is another pre-school, but the setting is very similar to that of Sibongile's.
