DAPP Amalika TTC Gratuates 58 Teachers
DAPP Amalika Teacher Training College (TTC) held its 8th graduation ceremony on 27th April 2018 at the College in Thyolo district.
A total of 58 student teachers earned certificates in teaching on this day.
Held under the theme “What You Learn, You Learn Twice by Teaching it to Others”, the event’s guest of honour was Thyolo District Education Manger (DEM) Godfrey Kunbwese.
The DEM commended DAPP for training teachers who continue to make a difference in the schools they are posted to teach. “Their classrooms talk of volumes of what they do with their learners, the school surroundings wear new and better looks, and liveliness that lack in many schools is present where DAPP graduate-teachers are,” he said.
DAPP Amalika TTC Operations Manager Moses Bokosi urged the graduating student teachers to practice what they had learnt at the college. “Make remedial lessons to those children that need special attention. Make a proper follow up of those learners that have special learning challenges, those frequent absentees and learners who drop out of school,” he said.
He also encouraged the teachers to continue being good ambassadors of DAPP by working with communities. “Empower girls and give all your support to the community in development works happening around your school, “he added.
Representative of the graduating students Gertrude Gwembere said that they were prepared to bring change to the primary schools they will be posted to. “We are so eager to teach in the rural areas and we will be agents of change in the communities where we are going to teach,” she said.
DAPP Amalika TTC was established in 2008. Since then, the college has graduated 481 teachers and the new team makes it 539.
