Reading competition boosts school performance
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.
