Double congrats to Vicki Graves for completing 10 years, and thank you Jeanne Botef for the unique gifts which each volunteer received.
Wow! What an enormous difference you have all made to the children's lives!

❤️ CHANGING ONE FAMILY AT A TIME....
"N" is a learner at The Link @H.A.Jack Primary School Striving for Excellence in Grade 2. He joined our project in 2018 and having had very little exposure to English, he struggled to read and quickly became the class clown in an effort to fit in with his peers. He attended The Link again this year, and with the help of amazing, committed volunteers, he has flourished and developed a love for non-fiction wildlife books!
But what is more amazing is how this has impacted his family!
He has a little brother in Grade 1 who was struggling with English and at the end of each day "N" would go to his brother's teacher and ask what he needed to practise with him for homework. He would also teach his brother everything that we were teaching him at The Link - which we discovered when we saw a huge improvement in little brother's progress in English!

Today at HA Jack prize giving, he was awarded a special prize entitled "He ain't heavy, he is my brother" in acknowledgement for all he has done!

The Link @Parktown gave the learners a wonderful year end party. Each child received a well deserved sweet treat, a pencil case and a book to take home, so they can practise their reading.
Thank you to all the volunteers at Parktown who have made such an impact on the Grade 2's and 3's this year!

WE ARE ON THE MOVE....The Link @Cliffview Primary School is moving to Risidale Primary School next year, so our year-end party was extra special and emotional. The learners crept into our volunteers' hearts as they extended their reading to catch up with their peers.
Nedbank and Cash-Connect graciously donated bags, pencils and water to the children to add to the gifts already collected by our volunteers. Each child also received a laminated certificate.
One learner commented: "....everything about my volunteer was perfect. She did everything so good!"
Thank you to all the volunteers you helped us this year at Cliffview! We look forward to seeing you at Risidale in 2020! 🥰
