The sad fact in South Africa is that over 70% of children in Grade 4 cannot read for meaning. This means…they can read the words but don’t necessarily understand what they read.

ARE YOU BEING BULLIED?
According to a survey, PIRLS 2016 (Progress in International Reading Literacy Study – pg 226 in the report) South Africa has the highest incidence of bullying among all 50 countries that participated in the study.
42% of Grade 4 students indicated that they were bullied weekly compared to 15% in the US and England.
We are looking for a sponsor(s) for “Sibo Beats the Bully” – a title on how to deal with bullies. Click here for more info.
