EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS BRING JOY
Hundreds of Grade 4 learners from Moeti, Retlaadira and Colinda Primary schools, in the Vryburg area, were overjoyed to receive much-needed educational resources including a mini library and comfy cushions, which will make learning more fun.
“These resources are not just items, they are the keys to knowledge and sources of inspiration. It is our hope that the learners and teachers will cherish these resources and the exciting reading spaces they create, for they hold the key to a brighter future for our children,” said Claire Phutieagae, Community Liaison Officer for Waterloo Solar, which funded this programme in collaboration with Read Education Trust, the implementing service provider.
In addition to the mini library, the support also included a projector and books, creating an exciting reading space in the school’s reading hubs.
This support forms part of a reading programme, which was launched in 2022, to help reduce literacy backlogs accumulated by Grade 4 learners, especially as a result of Covid-19 lockdowns. The aim of this programme is to improve the learners’ written language and reading skills by implementing different learning activities to develop their vocabulary.
