Read for my School - COMPETITION

11 Oct 2012

"It is important that we encourage more young people to read outside the classroom: reading for personal enjoyment enables children to practise their literacy skills and explore a wide variety of new and classic books. A national contest will motivate pupils to read and promote a lifelong habit of reading for all participants."

Elizabeth Truss MP,Education and Childcare Minister
