After the great success of our Literacy course at Northcrest Primary (where we hold our church services) we decided to begin a literacy course in our own “family”.
We are calling it “Reading Club” . We have created reading partners where an older person sits with a younger person and listens to them read. The idea is to foster a love of books and develop better literacy.
We aim to work on comprehension and reading skills – at this stage – in English. Later we hope to begin the same programme in Zulu Xhosa and Afrikaans
