Our whole community is celebrating reading this week. We have an exciting list of events in the school listed below. Students will also share a book with someone they know. Sharing your favourite book with a friend is a gift that is rarely forgotten.
ICS encourages parents to establish dedicated reading time at home. This is an opportunity for the whole family to sit down to read together. Reading at school prepares students for academic success. Reading at home cultivates a love of reading that is equally important.
