At the JNV we have incorporates a fun new was to gain the interest and imagination on our students when it comes to learning the mathematics. We have set up a range of casino games to help students to learn the odds and the equations. We have a poker table, roulette table and a craps table.
By using these tools and games, it will help to inspire the children when it comes to learnings of the probabilities and to have a hands-on approach to learning the maths.
We have put provisions in place so that children don’t actually gambles with the monies but use the equipment to understand the simplistic nature of maths which is found out in the real world.
The games have been donated and will be used by the children in the 7-10 age range category. We look forward to seeing the results of this when the program is rolled out in August.

We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the stationary supply Rulerz in Stationary. They will kindly be donating unsold stock as there business forecloses by the end of April. We will be able to give every student a set of brand-new equipment to use across all our schools.

Events will include a 100m race, mud wrestling, long jumps and pigeon shooting. We encourage all the family to attend and support their kid whether they are loved or not.
New canteen to come! We are getting a brand-new kitchen installed in the Maharashtra school. This will be servicing freshly prepared meals that include salads, soups and meals that include pizza, burgers and fish.
We will also be starting a new course on US language. This will allow for students to learn how to speak American. The popularity of US culture is big in South Africa and, thusly, feel the children would benefit from learning how to speak American and get their ‘dope slangs on point’. We will soon be receiving orders made of American flags and posters of Beyoncé and the royal Trumps family.
The event to mark this occasions, will take place on the July fourth day to commemorate with miss Beyoncé released her Lemonade album which received critical acclaim and number ones in the US billboard charting.
