The promotion of a reading culture amongst students with competence in and the love for reading is one of the key tasks for enhancing life-long learning in the curriculum reform. Through regular exposure to quality reading materials of various disciplines and expression of their reading experience, students will learn to construct knowledge, share experiences, ideas and feelings with others, develop new insights and perspectives, and communicate with others. Thus it is our school’s main concern to provide quality education by incorporating the components of reading to learn in our school policies through the provision of:
- an environment conducive to the promotion of reading;
- quality reading resources; and
- guidance and support to both teachers and students.
To put these into practice, a reading lesson has been included in the school timetable during which students can enjoy reading in a relaxed atmosphere in the School Library. Book fairs are also organized on a regular basis to facilitate regular exposure to quality reading materials. Moreover, book sharing activities are held by school bodies or subject panels. There are also other related activities including slogan design competition and display board. Positive responses towards the reading activities organized are witnessed.
