Summer Reading Program

summer reading program The Summer Reading Club encourages children and young adults to keep reading during the December – January school holidays. The program is promoted to both readers and parents as a way of supporting continuous reading all year and it being fun and entertaining reading. It is also aimed at targeting reluctant readers in that we do not reward those who read the most but rather try to reward ALL readers. We acknowledge the support of various sponsors who provide the goodies and prizes for this annual event.

This year the Summer Reading Club runs from the 3 December to the 15 January. Reading logs must be handed in by the 17 January 2017.

The presentation day will be on Thursday 19 January from 10.30, Book online here to attend.
