You are the best of the best
V. and Y. from Beer Sheve
In the 2004-2005 school year a decision was made to open a Tafnit Program class that
gives students, of whom some have learning disabilities, some a lack of motivation to
study, and some all kinds of other problems, a chance to be eligible for a atriculation
But all of them had the abilities within them to succeed with a little help, push and the correct guidance. Indeed they were given the opportunity to study in small classes and
groups, to be given practice marathons, repetition, and assimilation of the study material
with tutors who provided help and support, and teachers who were leaders who continued leading their students even when crises arose. And there were plenty of crises.
As parents, we saw for three years how our children were changing direction, maturing
and becoming more serious, taking on responsibility, and not just for their studies.
They were given tools to cope with all kinds of difficulties and different situations, and to
know that one must not give in easily, and learned there are ways to overcome problems
and to succeed. In this way a type of familial, warm environment was created between
students, parents and teachers.
We were all full partners in the entire process which eventually produced results, and
boasted an outcome in which 85% of the program graduates passed the matriculation
examinations; something that will open doors to them in the future. We were also given
the good news that the program is not yet over and they will continue to receive guidance
for the duration of their army service and up until they study in institutes of further
I sincerely hope that this program will continue, and expand, allowing future pupils to
benefit from it.
To all the staff that was willing to improve the group and give us the feeling that the sky
was the limit… We would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts! For the
successful conclusion; the friendly and positive environment that is the pinnacle of
society and community; the politeness and nobility of endless work and social dedication.
We would like to show our appreciation for the wonderful and devoted multi-faceted
partnership and hope to continue it. You have left us anticipating more!
It simply warms the heart to meet people who have contributed to our lives and are
willing to inculcate social values of expanding horizons and knowledge, in society at large
and in the individual community.
You are the best of the best, and we pray to continue to be blessed with talented people
