To promote reading and acknowledge students who are developing good reading habits and improving their comprehension skills we have introduced “Reader of the week “ in the Reception to Year 7 classes.
Each week teachers are nominating students from their classes who have displayed these characteristics. The awards are not limited to one per class and some weeks there may be multiple students from one year level and perhaps none from another.
The awards are books which have a commemorative book plate glued in the front acknowledging the student’s receipt of the award.
I would like to thank Ron Watson, principal of Point Pearce Aboriginal School and a number of the staff of Maitland Area School for their kind donations of books used for the awards.
