Writing training in Pongola

A three day retreat for young writers from 5 wards in the Vryheid district was held over the long weekend of the 27th April. This was a great way for a writing workshop as educators and learners worked hard at writing during the day and had leisure time together in the late afternoon and evening.

Seven educators, two trainers and 66 students were present. The quality of writing was excellent and the result will be two anthologies of stories and one book of poems for the district of Vryheid. In fact, this training was so effective that the educators themselves ran their trainings on the last day – so they know they can continue successfully when back at their schools. Well done to Mr Muzi Sibanyoni Premier’s Priority Projects. of the Vryheid Department of Education who organized this training – which was also a part of the Premier’s Priority Projects.
