Impact achieved

•The Christian David Moravian Primary School’s wish was to have access to a functional library with local language and age-appropriate books to help them reach their literacy milestones.

•For more than 100 years, they had no library and a very limited number of books which were outdated.

•With the launch of the new library, all children now have access to age-appropriate storybooks in a secure and dedicated space

•In addition, the school has initiated a daily “stop and read” activity. This involves everyone on the school grounds, who at a set time, downs tools and reads for 30 minutes.

•The impact of this infrastructural support is hugely important.  The library will help improve literacy levels in the school, help nurture the love for reading and contribute to children being able to read for meaning.
