My name is Vincent Tshite and I am the Reading coach at Barkly West Higher Primary School in the Northern Cape. The project is funded by the Droogfontien Solar Farm.

I really find the Spell It programme very useful to the kids. Most of the Learners really enjoy the activities and even like it when they have to write the spelling it tests.

I have found through the Spell It coaching programme that the Learners now understand most of the words I test them on. They are also improving in their writing.

Doing the Schonell spelling test was also good for the Learners to do as we could see their progress and they obtained good marks in the second test.

The Spell It kit we received also helps the children in so many ways, with different activities and exercises.

The reading drills we use, like Delta and Bravo have been very helpful and I  am now using them also for school Reading Club.
