In our school, we put a lot of effort into developing reading, both for academic progress and for pleasure.
Reading is important because it develops the mind. The mind is a muscle. It needs exercise. Understanding the written word is one way the mind grows in its ability. Teaching young children to read helps them develop their language skills. It also helps them learn to listen.
In last year’s survey, we found out that the majority of our students enjoy reading, but some are specific in what they like to read. While social media, blogs and fictional texts are a popular choice, a big group of students chooses comic books and graphic novels.
Today, as part of our Big Question, we asked students to help us update our school library by sharing their favourite types of books, titles or genres. We will support all students to express their preferences and help us update our school library to suit everyone’s taste.

We would like to encourage our whole community to read as much as possible, in whichever format they like. Reading will make your days fun and magical as you explore new characters, worlds and adventures.
