Visit to Mitchells Plain Primary School No. 1 in Westridge, Mitchells Plain
On Thursday 23 October 2014, the READ to RISE team visited Mitchells Plain Primary School No. 1 in Westridge Primary School to read with160 Grade 2 learners at four classes. Three representatives from Old Mutual joined the class sessions - Louise Jones, Winston Bowers and Debbie Arendse - to hand over the books, Mini- Libraries and stationery packs sponsored by Old Mutual. Thank you to the Old Mutual Foundation and Old Mutual for your investment in these children's education.
Thank you to the READ to RISE team - Nicholas, Roscoe and Taryn.
Roscoe, Nicholas and Debbie are all ex-learners of the school so it was wonderful to have them at the school.
The learners were so happy to get their very own copy to take home and were so grateful to see the Mini-Libraries that the Old Mutual Foundation sponsored. There were many smiles and hugs!
Thank you to all those who made this day possible. Such a great morning inspiring children to read.
