“Reimagine Education: Reggio Emilia inspiration in Africa” is now available in isiZulu and Sesotho
History in the making as we launched the groundbreaking isiZulu and Sesotho translations of our wonderful resource guide Reimagine Education: Reggio Emilia inspiration in Africa on 28 October 2021! The Italian Club buzzed with excitement and happy ululation as Board member Thandi Chaane paid tribute to translators and editors and the Premier of Gauteng, Mr David Makhura shared that the Reggio approach is close to his heart and that he would not have missed the occasion for anything.
