A “Reading Passport” is given to each pupil to track his/her self/family reading through activities found in the “Reading Passport”.  This passport assists in guiding pupils to select appropriate books to read.

This whole-school approach to instill good reading habits aims to achieve the objectives: Read for Joy (P1 and P2), Read for Understanding (P3 and P4) and Read for life (P5) to learn about new perspectives and ideas.
