Reading Rewarded

A group of dedicated readers were rewarded for their positive attitude to reading by being invited to a Pizza Party in the school library.

Saint Paul’s wants to encourage their pupils to make reading a regular part of their routine whether they’re reading solo or together with their classmates, parents, or friends. The school wants to help them to develop a life-long love of reading. It is very important to instil in young people a need and desire to read.

All the English teachers were impressed with the students’ commitment to reading – the whole school word count increased dramatically the second half term. The students read about 6,000,000 words in September and October, whereas the word count for November and December was 35,000,000!
