Kilts Impact

How KILT is having an impact

“Teachers are now forced to engage in an analytical process. Principals are also engaging on a deeper level with the curriculum as well as with the teachers. They now fulfil their roles as instructional leaders.”
Marietjie Beukes, curriculum adviser, Western Cape Education Department

“KILT’s intervention has reduced the learner-teacher ratio and increased the ability to provide schools with teachers who have special skills, for example, remedial teaching, as well as assistant teachers to help manage large classes. It also addressed the imperative to strengthen the education system from the foundation phase upwards in a more consistent and thorough manner.”
Connie Stuurman, Principal, Fraaisig Primary

“We currently have four KILT educators, of which two have been assigned to Grades 1 and 3, where they have made a significant impact on our learner academic performance, significantly increasing our pass rates.”
Leon Solomons, Principal, Sunridge Primary School

“With KILT funding, Concordia has been able to split our Grade 8 class – where we had close to 70 learners – into two classes. We boosted our matric pass rate from 55.1% in 2016 to 74.6% in 2017. We have just over 1 000 learners, and parents in our community depend on us for support … KILT has been a tremendous help.”
Zamubuntu Blaai, Principal, Concordia High School

“Assistance from KILT supports our vision of achieving a better school with better results. Extra teachers have reduced class sizes and made it easier for teachers to focus on their teaching. In addition to this skills injection, upgraded ablution facilities and the appointment of supervisors have eliminated vandalism, graffiti and misuse of toilets by learners. Water savings have been achieved through the installation of water tanks which provide rain water for the school’s vegetable garden.”
Michael Kleynhans, Principal, Hornlee Primary School

“This school is a treasure. Three generations of my family attended this school, my mother, me, and now my daughter. KILT is not an organisation that just donates; they get involved and they really care.”
