Drop Everything & Read

“Boxing” Down the Barriers to Reading

Book Boxes DEAR

On Friday morning it was "all hands on books” in Room 206 as reading material was sorted, counted and boxed. To our delight, the final tally revealed that we had received 1,100 books as part of our ’Book Drive’. As we began delivering the book boxes to teachers, excitement was rife. Some staff and students were even caught sampling the new reading material.

Thank you to everyone who contributed. Due to the huge success, we are extending the Book Drive for another month. We can’t wait to see everyone reading when D.E.A.R begins on Monday!

Drop Everything & Read (D.E.A.R.)
