The LifeMatters Foundation Literacy Programme is operating in 4 schools in the Southern Suburbs and has provided over 1000 hours of intervention in Term 1 of this year. Every week more than 100 volunteers read, play phonics games and do writing activities with 185 Grade 2 and 3 learners to help improve their basic literacy skills. We have just completed mid-year assessments at all 4 schools and we have seen encouraging improvements. Children that participate in the programme have gained an average of 29.3 points on our basic literacy assessment after only 5 months of intervention.
