The ability to read is at the core of both the students’ academic and social, emotional and moral development in school.  Furthermore, the ability to read directly corresponds to the ability to learn and is fundamentally related to the development of writing and speaking and listening skills.

It is our aim that all students understand that reading for pleasure is intrinsically linked to success.  Our main objectives are to:

  • Establish the attitude that reading is valuable.
  • Encourage students to express their own preferences and to access a range of challenging texts when selecting a range of reading material.
  • Create a culture where everyone is motivated to read for pleasure, both in school and at home.

In order for students to improve their reading ability it is essential that they are actively encouraged to read for pleasure at home as well as in school. Please use the resources available on AGS Literacy to encourage a love of reading and to support us in our endeavour to make students understand that reading for pleasure is directly linked to academic success.   Discuss their reading progress and encourage them to complete their AGS Read to Succeed Award’s Passport.
