GOEDE HOOP PRIMARY
We opened our first Shine Chapter (literacy centre) at Goede Hoop Primary School in Reiger Park, Boksburg in 2019. Our Goede Hoop chapter currently provides individualised support to 200 Grade 2&3 learners to strengthen their English reading, writing and speaking skills. Children work with trained volunteers twice a week, during the school day for an hour – The Shine Literacy Hour. A simple assessment at the end of Grade 1 is used to select the children who will take part in the programme and further bi-annual assessments enable children’s progress to be carefully tracked.
