Teacher's Introduction


I am Lettie Tervit, the Grade 8 English teacher at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. I am excited about the new format of the Learning Circle and look forward to learning how to use a wiki while also interacting with colleagues from across the world.

 Molweni, Sanibonani, Asalam molaykom (hello) everyone, we are the grade eight learners of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy(OWLA).Our school is located in the south east of Johannesburg well known as the City of Gold in South Africa. We are really excited about learning circle especially because this is our second time participating. Our school has 248 Learners who are in grade seven, eight, nine and ten. We are loving and caring towards each other and the community. We like reading books, playing cards, Chess, Touch Rugby, Soccer, Athletics, Cricket and swimming even though we dont have a swimming pool. In our spare time we are either doing sports or serving the community around us.

We hope that through Learning Circle we can learn more about the sounds and images of your countries.

Peace out!!
