Reading week 19 to 23 June

Reading week at Japari School

During the week of 19 June – 23 June 2017, the learners of Japari will be involved in fun reading activities, including being entertained by “Hooked on Books”. This year the theme for Reading Week will be ‘Colours’ which is in line with our “Rainbow Nation”.

We will be using some of our reading activities to raise funds to provide benches outside the classrooms, on which children can store their school bags:

  • ‘Read the Words’ challenge. Children will be required to read a list of words, and parents to sponsor each word read correctly, to a maximum of R30.
  • On Friday 23 June, children will be allowed to wear a coloured T-shirt to school if they pay R5 into our ‘Pot of Gold’.
  • On Friday 23 June at school, children can have coloured streaks sprayed on their hair at R5 a streak.

Japari’s birthday celebrations will also be held on Friday 23 June and all Parents are invited to join us at this function.

We thank you for your support.
