Samaah was anxious about the workload at school and found it all very overwhelming. Samaah’s mom, Ammaarah Rinquest, and her teacher, Ms. C. Basson, reported on Samaah’s progress eight months after she started at Edublox.
Samaah’s mom wrote
We enrolled Samaah at Edublox in March 2018 (Grade 2) because she was struggling tremendously with her workload, and started to notice the knock-on effect this was having on her self-confidence. She started questioning her ability to do things she usually loved, like reading.
In the last eight months, there has literally been an all-round improvement. On an academic level, Samaah has progressed beautifully, especially with regard to English and Mathematics. Her handwriting has improved drastically, and due to her having so much support from Edublox and her school/teacher, we have noticed a major uplift in her emotional capacity – she is happier and confident in herself and her work. She is incredibly willing to do over and above tasks needed to complete at hand.
We have seen the positive impact this has had from a home environment, and we honestly couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who has contributed towards developing our child into such a well-rounded kid.

As Samaah’s Grade 2 teacher, I have noticed a huge improvement in her overall academic progress and self-confidence.
At the beginning of the year, I could tell that Samaah was anxious about the workload and found it all very overwhelming. She tried really hard in class but struggled to complete the work set out for her and lacked confidence in her knowledge.
Within the last 8 months, she has drastically improved academically and socially. Samaah completes her work timeously (sometimes, she is even the first one to have completed work), and she doesn’t have a problem working independently at her desk.
Samaah has developed a passion for books, and her favourite pastime is reading on the mat. She went from reading lower-level books to going beyond the required reading level in such a short time. Her sentences have developed into well-detailed and structured sentences. Her face just lights up when she hears that we will be writing stories, and she never fails to amaze me with her creativity.
Samaah has gained confidence academically throughout this year and can tackle new challenges with ease. She has this enthusiasm and excitement for learning and loves participating in class discussions. Samaah has come such a long way since starting Edublox, and I couldn’t be more proud of her achievements. Well done, Samaah! You are a superstar!
