After 24 weeks, 274 pupils under the LFI-BINHI English Literacy Project underwent their post testing examinations. These were done for the grades 2 and 3 pupils of Libis Elementary School, Tomas Earnshaw Elementary School, Bagumbayan Elementary School, and San Ramon Elementary School and day care pupils of Brgy 898 and Brgy 894 in Sta Ana, Manila last March 1-7 to gauge their progress as against their pre-test and mid-test scores. The results of the post test will help determine if the students will still need additional help and undergo the next level or they have already become independent readers.
At the start of this project, the pupils in this project were selected on the basis of their not passing a simple reading test which is called a pre-test. Those who failed this pre-test become the “scholars” of the project.
This intervention not only let these pupils acquire the basic skills to read in English in order to catch up with the rest in their batch, but also boost their self-confidence and raise their dignity as many of them have been subjected to bullying not only in school but also at home because of their being non or slow readers.
This project, in partnership with BINHI English Literacy Foundation, supports and strengthens government efforts to provide quality education.
