    Case study: 


  • Green*: Tremendous improvement in Maths results.
  • Green (*) was a learner at Square Hill primary school in Grade 7 in 2010. She performed so poorly in Maths that the school recommended she should not go to high school and should instead go to a vocational school to learn a skill such as knitting or cooking. Her parents, ignoring the school recommendation, decided anyway to send her at Heathfield High school in Grade 8. They then sent her to our Learning Centre where she was actively involved in our classes. To our amazement, Green made an average mark of 68% in Maths at the end of the year. CCFRD has made a huge contribution in the life of this learner, and the whole family. Green is still improving her results and had an average of 86% in Grade 9 during June exams, in 2011.
