Hinterland teachers undergo home to school transition training

The Ministry of Education in collaboration with UNICEF planned and executed a two-day training workshop for all nursery teachers in Region 9.

The workshop was designed to bridge the gap between home to school transition and to examine the emergent literacy skills that should be taught to children for them to achieve early success in reading and writing.

The workshop was facilitated by Ms Ninian Blair, Survival and Adolescent Health Consultant at UNICEF and Ms Samantha Williams, ACEO ( N ) ag.news 20181122 11
