The IIE’s Varsity College Waterfall donates 355 Books to Noordwyk Primary School

The donation stands as a testament to the college's unwavering promise and dedication to nurturing not just a library but also future leaders within the community.

In a heartwarming display of generosity and commitment to education, Varsity College Waterfall recently donated 355 books to the library of Noordwyk Primary School.

This act of kindness stemmed from a Children’s Book Drive organised at the campus, allowing students and staff to contribute to a noble cause aimed at fostering literacy and knowledge among young minds. The handover of the books coincided with Children’s Book Week [May 6-12], adding a special touch to the event.

The deputy principal of Noordwyk Primary School Elias Lentsoane expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the support of the college.

“Our learners are so excited about using their library full of new books. The book donation was thoughtful and will provide learners with some of the resources they need to grow,” said Lentsoane.
Members of VC Cares, the student volunteer body at Varsity College, visited the school to engage the Grade R learners in immersive storytelling sessions, fostering a love for reading among the children who gleefully embraced this enriching experience.

The college believes that as the children immerse themselves in the world of stories and knowledge within the newly enriched library, the impact of this act reverberates far beyond the pages of the books themselves, instilling a love for learning and a sense of possibility in the hearts of young minds.
