SATURDAY BUDDY READER PROGRAMME
Deepa Rai, one of our Tuesday volunteers will be working with the school and Edu Fun to co-ordinate a Saturday Buddy Reading programme with a groups of Grade 3 learners at Diepsloot Combined School for the final term.
This is a wonderful opportunity for
The Grade 3 learners who are a bit behind with their reading to get a boost before the end of the year
People who have work or school commitments in the week to school get involved on a weekend
Current volunteers to involve their spouses and children in volunteer work
Reading Therapists in training to gain practical experience and meet their internship requirements whilst providing 1:1 reading instruction to someone who would not be able to afford private lessons a real – win-win.
The programme will start on Saturday 14 October at Diepsloot Combined Schooland run until Saturday 18 November 2017. (6 sessions until the end of year).
Times: 10am to 12pm.
We will meet at Dainfern Valley Shopping Centre at 9:30am on Saturday 14 October and car pool to the school.
There will be a brief Buddy Reader workshop for new volunteers on the first Saturday.
We will be appealing to current volunteers to support us on Day 1 of the programme as you will be more familiar
