READ-A-THON


Commences Monday March 6th and concludes on Monday March 20th


All money raised will go towards the building of a shelter to house the MARC VAN at Panmure Primary School.


This is not only a great means of raising money for a worthwhile cause, but more importantly, it is a fantastic way to reinforce good reading habits and strengthen a child's reading ability.  The main aim is to inspire and motivate children to read and to read regularly!  Let's have lots of fun with books!
