Westville Boys’ High was pleased to welcome 44 Matric academic achievers from 11 high schools in the Ntuzuma circuit to the first of four 3-hour workshops to be held at the WBHS on Saturday mornings.
The participating students were each provided with four past NSC examination papers in their major subjects. The object of the exercise is to collaborate with each other and members of WBHS Student Leaders’ Academic Support task team over the next three months to perfect their answers to questions from the past papers. In doing so, they intend to enhance their chances of achieving well in the 2019 NSC exams.
The WBHS teachers who served as facilitators and mentors in this project, were most impressed with the diligent and committed approach of the Ntuzuma students. The WBHS task team prides itself in promoting the benefits of collaborative learning at the School, taking inspiration from Einstein who once said: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” The intention is for the Ntuzuma students not only to engage in meaningful revision themselves, but also to replicate this collaborative approach in supporting fellow students at their own schools.
Ntuzuma circuit manager Mr Siboniso Sikhosana is commended on his foresight in promoting and supporting this project. Westville Girls’ High School will also complement the WBHS workshops with teacher-driven revision classes for the Ntuzuma students during the July holiday period.
