Visit to Meadowridge Primary School in Lentegeur, Mitchells Plain
On Friday 22 August 2014, the READ to RISE team visited Meadowridge Primary School in Lentegeur in Mitchells Plain to read with 210 Grade 2 learners at 5 classes. The children were excited to get their very own copy of OAKY AND THE SUN to take home. Readers, Mike, Kevin, Aaron, Nicholas, Roscoe and Taryn did a great job reading with the children and teaching them about the parts of a tree and how an acorn grows to become a big oak tree. There was a surprise for the Grade 2 learners from Old Mutual who sponsored stationery packs for each Grade 2 learner. The children were beyond excited! Thank you Old Mutual!
Thank you to our other generous sponsors. The books and Mini-Libraries for 3 classes were sponsored in memory of the late Gaspar da Silva Cardoso, who loved reading. The Old Mutual Foundation sponsored books and Mini-Libraries for 2 classes.
