During this half term, Y7 and Y8 students across Wickersley Partnership Trust are taking part in the Read for Good Readathon.
Read for Good is a registered charity that started as Readathon in 1984, by asking students to read whatever they wanted in their spare time, and getting their friends and family to sponsor them to raise money for seriously ill children in hospital.
Readathon continues to support reading for pleasure in schools and now raises money for Read for Good’s Hospital Programme, which provides books and a storyteller for children in the 30 major children’s hospitals across the UK.
Our students will take part in Readathon sessions every Wednesday morning during their reading period. They can choose a text of their own and spend their time reading independently.
If you would like to support our students with their fantastic reading efforts, and help to raise money to provide books and stories for children in hospital, you can donate to the Readathon here:
The money raised will benefit children local to our communities.
