The Ready Reading program invites parents and community members to make a difference in their local community by volunteering in schools to support children's reading.
Reading is a powerful tool to help children grow their vocabulary, language skills and imagination. It helps them to develop life-long skills that will support their future growth and learning.
The Department of Education's Reading Centre and Volunteering Queensland are working together to help improve literacy for children in Queensland by training up to 3000 volunteers to share their knowledge and time to foster a love of reading.
Register your interest to become a Ready Reading volunteer.
There will be a Ready Reading Training session in the Activities building at Boonah State School on Monday 04-11-19 from 9am - 1pm. The session is not just for people wanting to volunteer to support students with reading but is also open to parents wanting to learn more skills to support their own children at home.
To help plan for this session could you please register your interest by leaving your details at the Boonah State School office.
