Launched in Book Week, the Whole College Readathon is a great way for students to not only challenge and develop their reading ability but pay it forward for less privileged students.
On our Book we raised $2,578.40 across the College which will go toward developing the literacy skills of vulnerable students in Singapore as well as students in our long-standing sister UWS: Som Toch School in Cambodia. You can click here to learn more about where the funds will go.
We will add to these funds the money our students raise first ever readathon. Scroll below to the information added last week about this initiative as well as a downloadable copy of the sponsorship form. Copies of the form are also available in the library.
Books and reading are an essential element of our culture here at DSCG and we would like to use our love of books to help others.
We would like students to set a target for themselves to read a challenging number of books/chapters/minutes during the 8 weeks. !
Our readathon will help support vulnerable children in Singapore through the ‘Spright Academy’ at the . Among other projects, we would like to help them set up mini libraries and comfortable reading areas, giving the children access to high-quality books. The money we raise will be split between Spright Academy and also our long-standing charity commitment with UWS: Som Toch school in Cambodia.
