We have seen an increase in attendance of learners for our afterschool programme, since we applied the afterschool programme curriculum that we were trained for recently. Learners come in their numbers to do different activities that are fun but educational. We develop lifeskills such as self-esteem, critical thinking, rebelliousness, empathy and creativity through reading stories relevant to the themes. Literacy, numeracy, science and care of the environment are also taught through the stories. Learners enjoy activities such as drawing, colouring, making masks, singing and dancing.
