We are going to launch “Read For Good” on the 19th February among Y7-8 students. Read For Good is the UK’s national sponsored reading event for schools.
Read For Good encourages children to read for pleasure - an activity proven to increase children’s chances of success and personal happiness for the rest of their lives – while raising money to help seriously ill and disabled children.
Read For Good will take place at LCHS during Term 4 and the Easter Holidays and, of course, is open not only to Year 7 and 8 students but to all the students and members of staff who want to take part in it!
Participants will be asked to set their own reading target (it doesn’t have to be a whole book, it could be a newspaper’s article, a magazine, a website, anything they are interested in reading), ask family and friends to sponsor them, fill in their sponsorship cards and bring their sponsorship money to Mrs Sarah Parker in the Students’ reception or to me. Sponsorship cards and bookmarks are available in the library for everybody. Sponsors can pay online too at https://readathon.secure.force.com/sponsor/
Further information can be found at: http://readforgood.org/
Read For Good is also a house competition. Therefore, students not only will be raising money for a brilliant charity but will earn house points for taking part and there will be all sorts of prizes on offer!
Thank you very much for your support!
