On the first week of school for 2021, Dominic College celebrated World Read Aloud Day. This popular event celebrates the joy of reading and sharing stories in three easy steps:
1. Select a book 2. Find a buddy 3. Read aloud!
It was lovely to see our K-10 students taking time out to share their favourite books with each other. A highlight was one of our Year 10 students rushing to the Library after reading with his Year 6 buddy to borrow the book they had read together! Reading aloud provides a number of opportunities and benefits for children of all ages including strengthening their vocabulary, increasing their attention span, building connections between the spoken and written word, providing a way of exploring and discussing emotions and perhaps most importantly providing enjoyment.
So, why not grab a book and a buddy and share a book together on the weekend!
