Reading Week

Benefits of inculcating reading habits are truly limitless. It encourages imagination and creativity. It forms the basis of both personal and professional mind-set of the students and helps them to excel in their future endeavours. They learn to be innovative and think freely without constraints. It enhances their language skills which is very important, as having a good written and oral communication is one of the keys to success. Research suggests that reading enhances vocabulary, imagination, focus, concentration as well as memory, analytical and thinking skills. A child who learns to appreciate books will never be bored or lonely. Reading Week is an innovative way to introduce the joy of reading to voracious as well as reluctant readers.

The whole school celebrated Reading Week from 17th July- 22nd July, with a marvellous mix of events and competitions. The purpose of this week was to enhance the literary skills and infuse the students with appreciation, understanding, and love for reading. Assemblies had a reading theme, rewards were given to anyone 'spotted reading' and students were fantastically creative they wrote their own dynamic book openings and made story maps. To reinforce our reading week, posters promoting famous stories appeared in the most unlikely manner. One of the highlights of the events planned was the Character Parade where students dressed up as their favourite characters. There were some wonderful outfits, representing popular characters from some great books; just proving how a good book and story can have an impact on children's learning. During Author's Chair students met real life authors and learnt how stories and poems are written.

DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) was yet another highlight of the week- what a great day! At intervals, throughout the day the school bell rang and everyone 'dropped everything & started reading'. Overall, this week proved to be an exciting and fun filled voyage to reading heavens. A big thank you to our teachers, children, and parents for supporting the event that helped to reinforce the importance of reading in our children's education.

Like the young nobel prize winner Malala Yousafzai said “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world”.
