In preparation for the start of our pilot literacy programme,the Books and Beyond team paid a visit to the Shine Centre at Rosmead Central Primary School based in Claremont.
What an organised environment we found with busy, enthusiastic volunteers and learners working together in a well-resourced environment.
It is an inspiring example for us to follow and learn from.While, establishing our own programme at Sophakama Primary School.
After our visit, we were fortunate enough to receive a donation of paired readers from Shine.
It’s wonderful to be supported by such a well-established and caring organisation!
In addition, all our volunteers completed Shine’s volunteer orientation training.
While, giving them a good basis for our reading sessions. Together with the Sophakama Primary School learners.
