Raising Literacy Standards
To all parents
You are invited to The High School Ballynahinch book fair which takes place week beginning 12th October 2015.
You are welcome to visit from Tuesday 13th October to Thursday 15th October any time between 3:05 – 4:15pm. There will be many discounted books on sale as well as stationery.
There will also be a sponsored reading event commencing 21st September and pupils will be reading to raise money for children in Northern Ireland who are suffering with cancer. All Year 8 pupils participating will receive a small prize and there will be larger prizes for pupils raising over £50.00. I hope you will support us in this very worthy endeavour.
We are committed in ensuring our students read on a daily basis and I have enclosed a booklet to support you in encouraging your teenager to read. I hope you find this useful. If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me on the school telephone number 02897562424. I appreciate your continued support.
Mrs S. A. Jess
Head of English & Literacy Co-ordinator
