In July 2009 Alan and Hilary Davies, with the permission of the Zimbabwe Government, presented two-day THRASS workshops in Harare and Nyanga.

The video opens with Willy Dhlandhlara of the Solon Foundation telling us how brilliant the last few days have been. A lot of teachers have been seen assuming new roles, being reinvigorated and almost being born again and a number of them have told him that they didn't know teaching would be so exciting.

We then hear from some of the delegates attending the first THRASS SING-A-LONG workshop at Ariel School in Ruwa, Harare. Phoebe Musakan, Materials Production Officer (English) from the Ministry of Education feels that the workshop has been quite an eye-opener, a very inspiring course and a very educative one that will help the children to pronounce their words well. She would like to see THRASS cascade to all schools and teacher training colleges in Zimbabwe.

John Sithole, Acting Deputy Director, Education Technology Centre, Ministry of Education, feels empowered and believes THRASS is a good programme that should be rolled out in quite a number of schools, if not in all schools. Language is difficult to teach and a programme such as THRASS gives the teachers confidence to teach the children.

Other delegates are also really excited about THRASS, which they describe as a brilliant programme, a dream come true that can be used with pupils all the way up to university. They feel that the last two days have been empowering and thrilling because instead of doing things the same old way they have seen everything being done with creativity, innovation and a lot of energy which can make learning far more interesting. They are sure that the children will love the opportunity to be active that the SING-A-LONG songs offer them.
