Posted on Friday, January 27, 2017 - 10:38
The Orlando Pirates Learning Centre launched a new web based programme in partnership with TendoPro and Bona High School at the Orlando Stadium yesterday.
The programme enables young people from grade 8 – 12 to improve their skills in Maths and Maths Literacy while earning points in a unique fashion through the site’s Tendoberries.
Students from grade 12 at Bona High School were the first to be introduced to the programme and enjoyed the tasks and programmes they took part in. Amogelang Mofokeng, one of the grade 12 students said, “I really enjoyed the way TendoPro makes learning fun! I am excited to continue working on the programme to improve more and collect Tendoberries!”
Orlando Pirate midfielder Thabo Qalinge is a product of TendoPro and was on hand at the Learning Centre to provide motivation for the learners. He said, “TendoPro is an excellent way to improve your marks at school, it helped me and I am sure you will get the same benefits from it. I would like to encourage all of the learners to use the programme every day to improve what they have learnt at school.”
The Learning Centre plans to use TendoPro with many of the grade 8-12 students who attend the centre on a daily basis. The programme is just one of the ways the centre is uplifting the community and helping to make a difference in the lives of the learners living in and around Orlando.
What is TendoPro?
TendoPro is a unique programme that makes learning fun through its interactive tutorials and video clips which are updated daily and linked to the CAPS curriculum which learners are working on at school. The programme also offers tutorials for entrepreneurs and those wanting to study further to enhance their skills.
Tutors are on hand daily to help the students with work which has been covered on the day in their classrooms at school. Learners have access to the programme at the Learning Centre and wherever they find an internet connection so are able to learn after school at home or other community centres.
Learners can collect Tendoberries for each task they complete and use these to redeem prizes such as airtime and tablet PCs which helps motivate them to learn more.
