That is the motto of Frances Vorwerg School in Haddon, Johannesburg, whose focus is the education of learners with cerebral palsy or with learning disabilities. CLAIRE RENCKEN paid the school a visit
The mission of Frances Vorwerg School is to create an inclusive, supportive, stimulating and structured environment, in which the learner can feel emotionally and socially safe, in order to be able to work towards achieving his or her full potential and becoming an integrated member of society.
The school values and encourages learners to develop the following six characteristics: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship.
In a previous edition of Rolling Inspiration, the Grade R class of the school was announced as the winner of our “That’s how I roll” competition and won a Smergos BBF bag. The class teacher, Anandi Spies, decided that Juanita Fourie, an older learner at the school, who helps out a lot with the Grade R class, would be the ideal recipient of the bag.
So, on Friday September 2, as pupils and teachers celebrated Casual Day, Fourie was presented with her bag and each Grade R learner was given a copy of Rolling Inspiration to take home to their families.
