Visit to Westville Primary School in Westridge, Mitchells Plain

On Tuesday 14 October 2014, the READ to RISE team visitedWestville Primary School in Westridge in Mitchells Plain to read with 140 Grade 2 learners at 3 classes.  The children were excited to get their very own copy of OAKY AND THE SUN to take home. Readers, Nazeema, Aaliyah, 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. 

 

Thank you to mother and daughter team, Nazeema and Aaliyah, for volunteering your time to come read with the Grade 2s at Westville Primary School.
