Igugu Primary School, Msinga Book Launch

Igugu Primary School Dancing Pencils Writing Club held a launch of its new anthology at Msinga Top, a most beautiful area, and very remote.

An erudite audience made up not only of parents, children, the chairperson of the Parents body, but of Councillors, principals, ward manager, the Office of the Premier, and Dancing Pencils were present to celebrate with happy learners.

Mr Ntombela, the Ward Manager, told the writers that they have talents they need to develop. Felicity told them next year they will have a much thicker anthology and also perhaps some individual novels! Despite a cold wind, the children were all smiles.

Msinga district right on track

Being able to touch lives and make a difference in very deep rural areas is a privilege. It does however work in two ways – giving of information and receiving, and using, the information.

20 Msinga district teachers attended trainings organised by the Office of the Premier and were right on track in submitting anthologies from nine of their schools, by the deadline date in June.  What is more, the chairperson of their Dancing Pencils clubs who trained as a Master Mentor, has plans for spreading right brain writing with new clubs in the new year.

With enthusiasm like this, children in deep rural areas have an amazing chance to build very successful lives for themselves! Well done, Msinga!
