Harwich and Dovercourt school reading project
Students started a new project to read to primary school youngsters in a bid to encourage them to read for pleasure as they grow up.
Harwich and Dovercourt High School children spent time reading to 20 pupils from All Saints Primary in the town.
The event was part of the high school’s pledge to be a “reading school”, which has already seen students given a target of 20 minutes reading per day.
Assistant headteacher Ray Gallagher said: “This is another step in Harwich and Dovercourt’s commitment to being a reading school and this event showcased everything that is powerful and special about reading: Enjoyment, building relationships, learning, excitement, sharing, pride and a feeling of achievement.
