Staff and students at Ecole North Oyster recently participated in a week-long literacy celebration. This was the fifth year hosting such an event, with each year having a different theme. This year’s theme was Reading Around the World/Lisons autour du monde. Activities included a school-wide book swap, buddy reading, guessing games, theme-inspired classroom projects, a Dress as Your Favourite Book Character Day and a Family Literacy Evening.
In conjunction with Family Literacy Week, the school always runs a 14-day read-a-thon. This year, the school added a fundraising component. The school raised money to purchase new resources for the library and shared some of the proceeds with Little Angels Education Centre n Nairobi, Kenya.
