This week, we have been celebrating reading in school, the children have had memorable lessons on reading while spending time with their teachers. We've had guests in school reading to the children including governors, members of the clergy and Leanna and Dave from Radio City's Breakfast Show. Our intention was twofold; to promote reading and to raise money as part of a Readathon. The money which was donated by children on Thursday as they dressed as their favourite book character will go to replenishing libraries in children’s wards of hospitals. On Wednesday, some of our year five children went to Alder Hey to see the children and read with them - It was truly heart-warming experience. We wish to thank everyone involved in our reading week: children, visitors and teachers alike. We hold reading very dear in Saint Cecilia's and we will continue to do what we can to promote a love of books for our children.
