How do you decide what subjects to take for grade 10?
With help from AFFT, it’s easy – our grade 9 students spent the day learning about themselves and their interests and aptitudes through an online test which gives them an indication of possible career paths, and the subjects and marks needed to achieve them.
Volunteers from Moody’s assist AFFT’s grade 9s
5 volunteers from Moody’s South Africa joined our team for a grade 9 career assessment day. They not only helped the kids with their assessments but also shared some of their own stories and career journey.
Our motivational speaker for the day – Donald Makofane
Donald is in his final year of accounting and attended our career day to encourage our grade 9 learners. He was sharing some of his high school experiences, for example how his grade 9 life was and how they were to choose grade 10 subjects. Donald also said “there was a time I was dropping at school and I picked myself up through the choices I made”.
Thanks to Northwest Christian school
We are so grateful to our friends at Northwest Christian School for allowing us to use their beautiful computer lab and library for our grade 9 event this week! What an improvement over having it at our offices!
