Kohin soon to open resource centre

The Mind Moves instructors, Maxie Jansen van Rensburg and Olga Gouws.

STEELPOORT – The Kohin youth coaches have recently gathered at the Tubatse Chrome Club to discuss and plan the brand-new resource centre to open on June 16 at Maelebe Primary School.

The objective of the centre is to empower the youth in the community through educational training and development. All the educational activities at the centre will be free.

“The coaches at the centre will assist children as individuals, to develop and improve their skills. Teachers usually do not have the time to focus on one pupil at a time. They prefer groupwork and discussions. This means that some development problems a child may have, will never improve. It is our work to target these problems as well as the development of the child, by working one-on-one with them,” said

Maggie Rakgwal, Kohin youth coach.During the meeting the Mind Moves Institute also a paid courtesy visit to the Kohin staff.

They offer the perfect tools to improve children’s ability to perform in the classroom and boost their confidence. Interactive Mind Moves Workshops are tailor-made to address learning barriers and they have recently launched a new and affordable basic workshop for groups consisting of two to 40 members and even larger. The duration of the course is only 90 minutes and it focuses on the danger signals and the importance of children reaching their different milestones of development. There are also more in-depth individual courses available such

as a 5-in-1 core booster workshop.

The instructors will travel to groups interested in the basic course and workshops. “We are committed to assist the youth in their educational development. Our goal is to build more resource centres at schools in the Tubatse Circuit,” said Sunlie Posthumus, Kohin development coach. Old Mutual generously contributed R20 000 to the centre, but the youth coaches said they were still in serious need of charitable donations from the community and businesses.

If anyone would like to make a contribution to the centre they can contact Sunlie Posthumus on 076-525-9819.
