Learners from four Gugulethu primary schools locked horns in a contest for reading supremacy at the Gugulethu Public Library last week.

Grade six learners from Mseki; Vuyani; Sokhanyo and Intshinga primary schools were given five books to read, three of which were in isiXhosa and two in English. They were then asked questions from the books.

The three isiXhosa books were Ububomi kum Sindisiwe and Andiboni wumbi both by Nomazwi Phakane and Ngenxa Yesithembiso by Mcebisi Nkohla.

The two English books were From boys to men by Londi Gamedze and Themba a boy called hope by Lutz van Dijk.

The learners also had to answer some general knowledge questions.

Sokhanyo won the first prize with Mseki coming second while Intshinga and Vuyani took third and fourth place respectively.

Sokhanyo team leader and teacher Namhla Sombexe, said she was happy about the results.

She said the school put in a lot of work into the competition. She hailed the learners for doing the good work, saying she was just there to monitor their progress.

Senior Librarian at the Gugulethu Library Nomonde Mama said they had been hosting the competition for the past five years.

She said their aim was to improve reading skills among learners and to develop them while inculcating a culture of reading.

Mama said as librarians they invite schools to take part in the contest.

She said they were thrilled by the support they received from local schools.
