"Reading is a very important skill," states School Prinicipal, Melody Henry. “By exposing our students to many different readers it is our hope that this very special reading day will encourage them to practise their own reading skills.”
The theme for the reading day is “Created in the Image of God." Students and staff will celebrate their appreciation for family, friends, their community, their country, and for citizens around the world as they listen to the “stars” share favourite books."
