Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light – Vera Nazarian)
The book fever swept through EPS, from 15th July to 22nd July as the PYP Reading week celebrations got underway. ‘Reading Week’ began with a sparkle, keeping in view the aim that reading books not only empowers each of us but can unite us too. The entire week witnessed great exhilaration and excitement all around the school campus. It was a fun-packed week with children immersed in a plethora of activities to develop an understanding of how books can entertain and inspire all of us).
The students got an opportunity to participate in various activities to inculcate the habit of reading. To promote this habit, the school Library and the HRTs arranged activities like Scavenger hunt, Writing Books Reviews, Reading Tour, Artful Artists, Secret Code, Crafting Bookmarks, Story Telling sessions and many more. The students thoroughly enjoyed this stress-free week as it ignited the minds of the young learners).
Since the students of today’s age lack the passion for reading, this initiative taken by EPS seems to be instrumental in bringing a positive change. It was indeed an enriching and fun-filled week for the students. )
The Reading Week filled with activities came to an end with lots of success stories and accomplishments. We the organizers are delighted that the week went in a smooth way as the students participated in different activities with great interest and enthusiasm. )
The culmination of this week was Character Parade, where the students dressed up as their favorite book authors and characters. It was a wonderful way to end an exciting Reading Week with great success.
