Read­ing com­pe­ti­tion boosts school per­for­mance

Eyethu Baywatch - - NEWS • IZINDABA - Tam­lyn Jolly

ME­GAN le Roux, a Grade 5 learner at Richards Bay Pri­mary School, walked away with a R600 book voucher as she be­came this year’s proud win­ner of the Bay Watch Read 2 Lead com­pe­ti­tion.

Me­gan was the most reg­u­lar en­trant into the com­pe­ti­tion through­out the year.

‘I love read­ing, and I was so ex­cited to get a copy of the pa­per each month so I could read the ex­tract and en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion,’ said Me­gan.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion has fu­elled Me­gan’s de­sire for read­ing and she has no­ticed not only an im­prove­ment in her gen­eral knowl­edge, but in her read­ing and writ­ing skills too.

‘The Read 2 Lead com­pe­ti­tion has been very worth­while in that my school work has im­proved dras­ti­cally as a re­sult of the ex­tra read­ing.’

Me­gan ad­vises all Grade 4 and 5 learn­ers to par­tic­i­pate in the com­pe­ti­tion next year and they, too, could not only see im­prove­ments in their school work, but also be in line to win book vouch­ers through­out the year.

Me­gan’s R600 Bar­gain Books voucher was handed over by Natalie Kee­gan from Tronox, the com­pe­ti­tion’s main spon­sor.

Bar­gain Books is a reg­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion spon­sor, hav­ing sup­plied vouch­ers to monthly win­ners through­out the year.
