The literacy project was founded by Mr. Andrew Summers in early 2014. The primary mission for the project is to further develop the culture of reading and writing amongst children, through reading and writing activities.
The project seeks to fulfill this mission by implementing clubs for learners outside school tuition, where learners will start to associate reading and writing with fun activities. Based on the preliminary report we have founded that children are not exposed and coached properly on writing and reading, usually for them this is a lonely and difficult journey which results to little enthusiasm and ultimately loss of interest.
The literacy project has since established several clubs that are for high school learners as well as primary learners which feed to the high school.
The clubs are:
- Creative/Academic Writing Club
These are once a week writing clubs for grade 10/11 learners to teach them to write for real reasons, for creative purposes and for academic purposes. The clubs focused mainly on the following:
- Focus on autobiography and poetry writing in TERM 1
- Focus on Story writing in TERM 2
- Focus on writing of ARGUMENTS and DISCUSSIONS in TERM 3
- Focus on writing NEWSPAPER ARTICLES/REPORT WRITING in TERM 4
