Reading Together

We will be holding our Reading Together Programme again in Term 4 2018. 

Dates are:  Monday 29th Oct - Monday 5th Nov - Monday 12th Nov.              2.15pm - 3pm in the school library.

Reading Together is a set of research-based workshop programmes for parents and whanau to support their children’s reading at home.

By teaching parents useful strategies that can improve their children’s reading while removing stress, Reading Together aims to make reading a more successful and pleasant experience at home – the benefits for both children and adults are huge.  Research shows that support from home really helps children to become good readers.  The Reading Together workshops will show you how best to do this.
We are positive that you will find it of great help for yourself and your child(ren), as you support their reading. 

If you are interested in taking part in our Reading Together programme, please fill out the online registration form  or alternatively email sandyh@davidst.school.nz  or phone the school office 889-7780 with your details.
