Read On!

12th Apr 2019

In March we took part in Read On week. This sponsored reading event was in aid of the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund For Children, which supports children and young people diagnosed with cancer, or living with a parent diagnosed with cancer. They offer support in their home, community, on the hospital ward and at their residential centre, so that no family has to face cancer alone. This worthwhile event gave us an opportunity to read in school even more than usual! Classes took part in a range of reading based activities from performing drama sketches to listening to audio books. Pupils enjoyed reading and listening to short stories, plays and articles while raising money for this worthy cause.

The project allowed us to improve confidence and enthusiasm for reading whilst learning about the importance of charities such as this. Pupils benefitted from finding out about the help and services provided by the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children. We raised a MASSIVE £900 through this sponsored reading event. An amazing total! Thank you for your support!
