I recently had the pleasure of visiting Heerengracht Primary School in Eldorado Park, where Mrs Eden Daniels is the head.
Oh my gosh! What an amazing school. From my first encounter with the security guard who was efficient, helpful and polite; to meeting with Mrs Daniels herself, who has energy enough for two people.
The grounds were spotless, children curious yet polite and very well mannered, and the general appearance, very inviting. I immediately felt at home.
I asked if they would like the Schools Reading Roadshow to visit.
“What is the SRRS?”
Well, we are a group of authors visit Primary Schools, chat to pupils about our books and being an author and the fact that books don’t just materialise but are written by ‘real’ people. Plus, we deliver workshops on eg. anti-bullying, littering, living on a farm, travelling across Africa.
Mrs Daniels also showed me her School library which had been recently donated and to which the SRRS hope to add a few more books.
Plus, for one lucky grade 6 pupil, I am awarding a free book for the best-written story, which I will be collecting soon. I can’t wait to see these and am very excited to return to Heerengracht Primary.
If your school would like a visit, do get in contact.
