Book Week: Readathon 2018

09 Feb 2018

The students of the Junior Section were introduced to the Readathon at a Thursday Assembly where two pupils from Class VI explained that the Readathon encourages reading as well as raises funds that go to charities. A PowerPoint showed the seven charities that benefited from last year’s efforts. This year, the students will continue the tradition of asking sponsors to make a donation for every page they read. They have been given forms in which they will note down the names of the books and the number of pages they have read. The forms, along with the money they have collected, will be returned to the class teachers on the 9th of March. The Junior Section is ready to spend the next month ‘Reading for a Cause.’ For this purpose, a reading arena has been created on the stage area in the Junior Section courtyard.
