Special Needs facilities

Remedial and learning difficulties are pervasive in almost every school.  However, in environments such as HA Jack, support to these special needs children is minimal.  Whilst a special needs teacher has recently been introduced to the school, she is expected to teach a class of 21 learners aged from 10 to 13.  Special purpose equipment such as specific games and learning interventions as well as basics such as multiple whiteboards/blackboards so that the class can be appropriately segmented during the school day would be of great assistance.  

Volunteers in areas such as Art, cooking, sewing, etc. would be welcome to give the Special Needs teacher additional support in helping to provide these children with their development.  At present, these children are being ‘managed’ in a mainstream environment with very little additional support. As noted ,we now have remedial teachers but they are only available to Grade 2 learners. We have some Grade 7children who are unable to read.


A note to corporate donors:

We would be most grateful to corporations that might donate products and services in kind.  For example, a recruitment and training provider might offer to include a school’s administrative staff in ongoing workshops or a catering company might assist in the procurement and delivery of feeding schemes.  In this way, we could leverage corporate expertise and intelligence for the benefit of participating schools.
