In the Language & Literature department, we work to foster a love of reading among Secondary students. As teachers of Literature, we love books and want our students to enjoy reading. We assign books in class and regularly take our students to the library to read novels of their choosing.
Reading for as little as 30 minutes a day has long-term positive benefits for both students and adults. Studies show that reading books for enjoyment improves brain function, increases empathy and emotional intelligence, and can even prolong your life.
As parents, you influence your child’s reading habits more than anyone. If your child sees you reading and enjoying books, than he or she is more likely to read and enjoy books.
