CBN has successfully handed over three reading toolboxes that were sponsored by Rotary Newlands (2) and the Crankhandle Club. These boxes will go to teacher-librarians in under-resourced schools in order to help increase awareness in books and reading.
The toolboxes were received by Phumla Sibene, Principal of Sevile Primary School in Khayelitsha and her school librarian and by Buyiswa Ponti, reading activist at Red Hill informal settlement. Vanessa Rousseau took delivery on behalf of Red Cross Children’s Hospital School. A small workshop will be held in September for those working directly with the toolboxes.
