Your sons can help others in need

From Head of Library Services, William Roberts

We are looking to support the Smith Family’s Student to Student Reading program.

Can your son help?

This program is a great fit as well for any boys doing or planning to do the Duke of Ed program the College offers.

What is needed is for your son(s) to listen to another child read.

This would occur for 2 or 3 times a week, between the hours of 4pm – 7 pm or weekends with more flexible hours. Sessions are for at least 20 minutes long.

This is done from home via an online platform boys log into.

Your son would be paired up with another student 2 years younger, remotely.

This is a great way to support disadvantaged youth gain confidence and literacy skills, leading the way to success at school and in life.

The program would start from June and be for an 18 week commitment.

If your son is available please send me his details by May 29

We are hoping to get up to 10 boys to participate.
