KZN Junior Rangers' activities for the first quarter of 2009

Date: 2009-03-09

The activities of the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Junior Rangers (JR) for the first quarter of the 2009 involved facilitator training and a portfolio workshop:

Junior Ranger facilitator training

With the new JR training materials available, it is full steam ahead all over the country with recruitment and enrolment of JRs. In January, the KwaZulu-Natal region completed the training of 26 prospective Junior Ranger Facilitators in the Durban South area, which was started in November. Their generous sponsor, SAPREF once again allowed them to use their well-equipped Training Centre with its printing facilities and sponsored lunch and morning tea. There are now Facilitators from four Umlazi schools.

Portfolio Workshop

In February, a Portfolio Workshop was held in the Amanzimtoti Library Functions (arranged by Ellen Abel) where all facilitators were invited. As the portfolio is such an important assessment tool for not only the Junior Ranger training, but also for general school subjects, some of the basic skills in setting the portfolios and compiling them, were covered.

Later in the year, there are plans to cover the assessment of portfolios at another workshop. The KZN region feels that the training of facilitators is crucial to the success of the movement.
