The first quarter has been a learning curve for me as the newly appointed personnel at TRAC SA. The work is a challenge but the support one gets
from all stakeholders within the project (School management, Sponsors, Educators, Subject facilitators) is remarkable. Learners love the programme
and will benefit from it.

RE: REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL MOBILE LABORATORY SUPPORT IN DISTRICT GAUTENG NORTH
With reference to our meeting on 13 May 2009 at Lingitjudu and our telephonic conversation on 18 May 2009, I would like to express our appreciation for the
input of your company and the sponsors to help the 4 schools in Ekangala to improve their Physical Science marks by providing help to the educators and
learners. The TRAC mobile laboratory is an excellent tool used in helping learners to do practical work and teach them skills. I have been to the schools,
unannounced, to monitor the programme and it is done in an excellent way. You have an excellent tutor, Pilane Sehole, that knows what he is doing and also
how to work with the learners.
I hereby request you to include the following schools also in the programme, since they lack the necessary facilities to do practical work with the learners.
Names of schools in Bronkhorstspruit and Cullinan for additional Mobile laboratory support in Physical Science
Yours in Tirisano
