We are encouraging staff and students, families and friends to take part in the Reading Challenge 2020.
You are invited to take part in the Reading Ahead Challenge, this is an initiative run by UNISON on behalf of the Reading Agency. Research shows that when we inspire people to read for pleasure they benefit from far greater opportunities in everyday life, education and employment. Did you know that reading for 6 minutes a day reduces stress by 68 percent! Reading Ahead is the gateway to these opportunities. The programme is designed to help people improve their reading skills and develop a love of reading.
The challenge is to read 6 books or other texts of your choice between January and June. On completion of the challenge there will be celebratory event where you will be presented with a certificate to honour your achievement.
‘Quick Reads’ will be available on loan for busy people.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to sign up, borrow from our book collection or just to know more about the challenge!
