To encourage students and our wider community to keep up with their reading during the summer holidays, a Lower School challenge was set to read 1,000 books. We are delighted to announce that we have exceeded our goal by reading more than 1,200 books!
Our Lower School program focuses not only on the academic, but also on the creative, moral, and physical development of children. Reading is integral to that development, encouraging curiosity and fuelling the imagination of our students.
Based on the theme of “play your part,” this year’s Lower School Summer Reading Challenge was met with great enthusiasm. The selection of reading material offered to our students was chosen to inspire them to think about how they can make a difference and included titles such as “Magic Pencil” and “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.”
After reading the titles of their choice, our younger students also created their interpretations of the story, whether that be through art, model making, or storytelling.
Ms. Lockhart, Lower School Library & Media Specialist told us, “I am pleased that we managed to read over 1,000 books during the summer! Many thanks to everyone who participated in the challenge. I have enjoyed seeing all of the wonderful creations the students produced, inspired by the stories they read.”
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the challenge. You can view some of the photos of our reading superstars HERE.
