Riversands Primary School This used to be known as a “farm school” and is situated just a few kilometres from the new residential development, Steyn City. Most of the learners come from Diepsloot and walk 3kms to school daily. Many come from Zimbabwe and Malawi and English is their second language.

We work with 62 of the 120 Grade 2 pupils for two 35 minute sessions on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. We would love to work with the learners one on one but this is not possible at present, due to a shortage of volunteers.

We have recently been donated a dedicated classroom for our literacy project.
