Sharing the Love of a Good Book at St. Benedict

St. Ben's students Allyson Sauder (left), and Kasandra Flynn use their cell phones in class to text a message to a friend about a book they enjoyed.

April 17, 2011 - A school-wide celebration of books was held at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School during Reading Week April 11th -15th. To further develop the love of reading, students were encouraged to use integrated technology to share with a friend their favourite story on Facebook, Twitter or You Tube. Students were given time to Drop Everything And Read, using their e-readers such as Kindle or just old- fashioned books. The activities continued all week with Book Club meetings,book swaps, and a graffiti wall to journal about their love of a good book.
