Four local libraries in conjunction with a literacy promotion organisation have hosted a reading festival for 120 Grade R learners.

The festival was held on Thursday 21 November and was hosted by Rockland’s Library at the Rockland’s civic centre in partnership with Town Centre, Westridge and Tafelsig libraries and Nal’ibali.

The integrated storytelling initiative was centered around safety ahead of the school holidays. The fire department also hosted a demonstration. The learners were from Seaview, Eisleben Road and Caradale primary schools. The programme ran from 09:30 to 12:00.

Maureen Williams of Westridge library says storytelling and reading aloud is an age-old occurrence and encouraged the children to learn from stories.

With the overall theme of safety, all stories focused on safety lessons including not opening the door for strangers, not playing with fire and important tips should the child get lost.
