Room to Read
On Monday the 6th of November, Kingsworth Primary kicked off their very first Readathon with a visit from Julie Marks and Penny Fleury at Room to Read.
The visit encouraged students to reflect on what it feels like not to read or write and also to consider how, by educating, the poverty cycle can be broken.
Last year, Kingsworth Secondary raised over 2000 euro through a Readathon and various other fundraising activities.
This year, for the first time at Kingsworth Primary, students will participate in a Readathon and our Grade Five students will engage in a Spellathon in mid-December.
Students enjoyed the presentation and have acquired a highly enthusiastic approach to this fundraising event.
Stay tuned for our results in the new year!
