Westville Senior’s ‘No Shelf’ Act | Road mail
In an effort to help revitalize the Junagarth Road Elementary School Library, Westville Elementary School (WSPS) students organized a book drive and were able to collect over 600 children’s publications.
The call for good quality books was launched at the start of the second term as part of the outreach project, as the WSPS wanted to give Junagarth learners a much needed boost in reading materials.

“Our school was overwhelmed by the generosity of our parents. Donations included many popular titles such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Harry Potter, as well as books by sought-after authors such as David Walliams, ”said Cheryl Nyman of the school.
Namenyi Project Hope, a charity, collected the WSPS donation and handed it over to the happy and grateful staff at the South Durban-based school. In addition to this, WSPS also donated a large box of books to help strengthen the library for students at Dawede Elementary School.
