Reading for Life
We belief that discipline should be educated, not enforced. The READING FOR LIFE Programme promotes literacy in our students, by incorporating it as part of our Martial Arts curriculum. Our students are not permitted to grade to the next rank / belt colour unless they have read the minimum required.
Books are donated by LAPA UITGEWERS and distributed by the instructors to martial arts students residing the various farms and in small rural towns. The students circulate the books among themselves until the next class the following week.
The READING FOR LIFE Programme encourages children to become literate community members, to foster a positive attitude towards reading and learning, increase daily reading activity, improve attendance and academic achievement, and to raise their self-confidence.
