“Just for an awareness, nice project, and willing to help.”

@Selbybok commented:

“Now, here’s a noble initiative, not a vanity project of splurging taxpayers’ money on a flag when millions go to bed daily without a meal; when thousands of girls don’t have sanitary pads, etc, etc.”

Mzansi applauds teacher’s unique approach to helping a child struggling with maths homework

In another story, Briefly News reported that when it comes to learning, the importance of great teachers can't be underestimated as they play a role in a child’s foundational learning and social development.

An inspiring example of a teacher dedicated to helping her learners through their learning difficulties is Bonnie (@yafavoriteaunty), who recently shared she handled a situation in which one of her learners was struggling with maths.

Taking to Twitter without revealing the child’s identity, Bonnie shared a photo of a homework page where one of her ‘babies’, as she affectionately calls them, didn’t do his work. The young boy made a note on his homework page indicating that he found division hard.
