On Monday, 23 June 2014, READ to RISE Volunteer Readers went to Ridgeville Primary School in Westridge (Mitchells Plain) to read and hand out copies of Oaky and the Sun to four Grade 2 classes.
READ to RISE Programme Manager, Roscoe Williams, handed over four new Mini-Libraries to the classes.
Our Volunteer Readers then read to the children and each child was then given their very own copy of Oaky and the Sun to take home.
Thank you to our Mini-Library sponsors - Fabian Fieliciano, Ridgeville Primary Ex-Pupil, Cassidy & Kirsten Williams and Doing Great Things.
Thank you to our Oaky and the Sun book sponsors - Pers Nooitgedacht, Sappi, Mills Litho and Alpha Graphics.
Thank you our Volunteer Readers - Mike Kendrick, Kevin Wildschut, Aaron Tejada, Nicholas Williams, Roscoe Williams and Darren Amos - who read to and handed out new books to 130 learners!
