Holiday Reading, Art and Sport Programme - Volunteers Needed! 

During the June holiday period, Edu Fun and St Peter's School partner with Read For Africa and Diepsloot Combined School who lead a three day Holiday Buddy Reading, Art and Sport Programme for a group of learners from Grade 2 and 3 at Diepsloot Combined School. This programme costs R300 per child to run. 

This year, the programme will run on Wednesday 29 June until Friday 1 July 2022 from 8:30am to 1pm daily. 

Volunteers are mainly needed for the reading programme, however if you, your children or other people you know would be keen to join us - they can sign up for the Reading, Art or Sports Programme.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to put your name down to volunteer for one or all of the mornings. 

School children and students of all ages ​ (7+) are a great help and they really enjoy the programme too. We do issue reference letters and verify hours for community service as well.

We're aiming to hos 120 learners on each of the 3 days of the programme. Each day, the students will enjoy one on one customised reading lessons as well as daily art, dance and sport sessions.  The programme is provided free of charge to the students with the help of generous individual and corporate cash and in-kind donations as well as many volunteers who give of their time to make the programme possible. The children who attend receive breakfast, lunch and snacks each day and get prizes and other gifts. 

We are very grateful for the extraordinary support we receive from St. Peter’s School to make the holiday programme possible each year. St. Peter’s interns play a vital role throughout the programme through their leadership of the children as well as helping with the reading programme and assisting with the art and sports sessions.
