Michelle Gordon, Emma (Grade R) Chelsea Preparatory Northway, KZN

Emma is a very introverted and shy child, and she has taken to SEMAS and her Instructor like a duck to water, and I am thrilled about that. For me to see Emma being happy and confident enough to go to SEMAS classes is an indication of the quality of service and teachings. I have noticed how much better she has got with her SEMAS homework, and how much easier she is working with her abacus. She even uses her abacus when she is doing sums on her little Barbie computer. It has definitely been an advantage that the SEMAS class is a small group of children.
