The Valleys Sr. Public School welcomes authors to celebrate World Read Aloud Day
The Valleys Sr. Public School celebrated World Read Aloud Day on Mar. 5 with great enthusiasm. The assembly started with a welcome from Lit World who spoke to the whole school through Skype. Three well known writers of children's books, Eric Walters, Ted Staunton and Shane Peacock, then enthralled the students with their stories. Each of the authors read aloud extracts from his book along with a few students and staff members. The afternoon ended with the entire school reading "A Poem about Children's Rights" by Dorothy Roigt together. Many students were heard saying that they thoroughly enjoyed hearing the authors read aloud and were inspired to read more books.
