“In the last 8 months there has literally been an all-round improvement”
Samaah was anxious about the workload and found it all very overwhelming. Samaah’s mom, Ammaarah Rinquest, and her teacher, Ms. C Basson, report on Samaah’s progress after she enrolled at Edublox.
We enrolled Samaah at Edublox in March 2018 (Grade 2) due to the fact that we had seen she was just 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 that she usually loved doing, like reading.
In the last 8 months there has literally been an all-round improvement. On an academic level Samaah has progressed beautifully, especially with regards 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, confident in herself and her work and 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 as well and we honestly couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who has attributed towards developing our child into such a well-rounded kid..
Ms. C. Basson:
As Samaah’s Grade 2 teacher, I have noticed a huge improvement in her overall academic progress as well as her self-confidence.
In 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 she 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 is able to 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 super star!
