Pupils celebrate International Literacy Day

In celebration of International Literacy Day, Coronation and its literacy education partner Living Through Learning hosted over 60 Grade 1 students from Hillwood Primary School. Pictured is Coronation CFO Mary-Anne Musekiwa with some of the Grade 1’s.

The Grade 1 Class of Hillwood Primary in Lavender Hill was treated to a special day of book reading, arts explorations and sculpture garden walks at the Norval Foundation in Steenberg last Thursday ahead of International Literacy Day on Friday September 8.

The children and their teachers were taken on a tour of the Norval Foundation art museum and sculpture garden. This was followed by an interactive reading session of the book How Vincent a Western Leopard Toad Found His Croak, an activity that was inspired by the art seen on the guided tour, in the Norval Foundation Learning Centre. Each child received a “Making Art History” book, pencil cases and pencils, and an eco-bag to take home.

The day was hosted by Coronation CEO Anton Pillay and literacy partner, NPO Living Through Learning.
