What book are you reading?

As we progress as a school we have found that having a strong emphasis on reading has become more important in order to develop our young people.  We are setting out to encourage our students to read more, and part of this is leading by example to show the joy of reading.

We have asked teachers to write down what book they are reading or listening to and put it on their form room door. This project has been paired with the library project inspiring young people to pick up a book and get lost in the world of reading.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
