Positive and lively launch
The launch was held at a primary school where the teachers have been trained on the use of the Correctbook. You could feel the positive and happy excitement from the audience, in a lively environment. During the launch, children danced, sang and read out poems, and several speakers gave insightful presentations. One presentation that stood out, was a speech by a headteacher.
This head teacher worked at a school in a rural area, where most families are impoverished. Because of the low income of the parents, most families can hardly afford to buy textbooks for their children, and once they buy exercise books, they cannot afford to invest in a bag to carry the books. They will have to carry the books in their hands. In these hard times, it is even more difficult for parents to buy exercise books, and therefore children often go to school without writing materials.
