VUSA Update from Nikki Matthews

VUSA hits the ground running in 2022 providing academic support for children in the Langa Community

VUSA has started the year with a strong focus on academic support to assist children in the Langa community after the past two challenging COVID years.  Early intervention is key and the creche programme has grown from strength to strength.  In 2019 we partnered with three registered ECD Centres and launched a numeracy and literacy programme through play.  In 2021 we introduced the tuk-tuk mobile library which visits the three centres each morning and reads books to the children and this year we are rolling out an English as a second language programme (ESL) in partnership with Project Playground.  

Many of you will have seen the Atlas Digibus drive out of the Bishops gates each morning as it heads to Langa to provide  (ESL) lessons for Grade 4 learners from 5 primary schools.  Each afternoon, VUSA children also receive academic support in English and Maths as well as homework study sessions.  We are keen to involve Bishops Boys (or parents & grandparents) who wish to volunteer at the homework sessions  (which take place at the Leap School from Mondays to Wednesdays from 3 – 5pm).  Should you wish to get involved, please contact Nikki Matthews or Brendan Fogarty.  Please click HERE to read the VUSA Newsletter.
