Mpilonhle Mobile Unit One at Madwaleni High School this is what was happening through out the 1st week, our compulab is always packed, more classwork/ homework and assignment programs, more office programs, more typing programs, more computer quizzes and more fun through out learning.
2nd week at Nkosana High School, pictures were taken from grade 11 learners “you cant miss the IT Training Session” every learner at the school they want to be a part of this. some of the learners they even book the break time so that they can do their research or assignments even at after school you will be amazed that I’m always the last person to close my class because of these learners doing their daily homework’s and assignments.
This 1st week we are at Nomathiya High School. I have got a chance to work with the Skillz team for the 1st time in the field. There is still IT, Health ed and VCT but now there is Skillz added.
It has given all of us a freshness feel about work as there has been a few adjustments made to the way we work.
The rest of the unit has gotten a chance to shout YEBO! In the skills way.

A learner at Nkosana High School in grade 12, he was referred to the Social Worker for being an orphan (lives with mother), through the interview it was discovered that he has never met with his father since birth. It was than agreed that searching for his father was the main self mission he has set for himself. He often gave a lot of thoughts as to how it feels to have and grow up in the presence of a father.
The Social Worker did the best he could for the client, the mother of the client was invited for an interviewed at school, for further information on the father, the mother did respond well and cooperated through out the process of the interview, the major problem in the course of the search, was that the father of the client had retired and his’ where abouts were unknown.
A media program for missing persons was utilized, the father’s profile was sent and the father did respond and this lead to the meeting arrangement, in Durban. The client currently lives with his father and hold temporal jobs and was well received by the step mother.
This has truly brought joy to the client’s life and the need for Social Workers to intervene and change lives of those that need help was truly realized. All this happened during the year 2009.
The first week of electronic registration went well. We visited 3 schools. It has been very enjoyable cause we have been just updating learners from last year and registration of new learners for this year.
We also have been giving out shoes to learners each day. Big thanks to Tom Shoes for the donation.
