Sifunda kunye runs many projects and Literacy Project is one of them. The project started in 2009 as a small Saturday morning book club and as years went by it grew bigger and became very popular in the Kieskammahoek area. Our school, with the help of Jolande Swartz has also managed to adapt this lovely initiative and ours was launched on the 3rd of August 2018. The club takes place twice a month on Saturdays and it is scrutinised by the school’s Lab facilitator Yonela Swayi and 5 Reading club facilitators from Grade 11. The Club is growing and so far we have a total number of 75 kids who enjoys each and every session that when the day has to end, their faces saddens.
We are looking forward to a brighter future!
