Students enjoyed a range of reading activities during a fantastic Primary Book Week at a local school.

There were many reading-related activities and events during Primary Book Week at Garden International School (GIS). Chon, the Library Manager, organised a competition where students had to get clues from teachers to work out all their favourite books. All through the week, groups of Primary students went to read with the younger students in Foundation and they all loved that! The book fair was well-attended and had some very good books for all ages.

Primary Book Day was a fab finale to the week starting with a pirate parade, then a whole day of reading fun. Through the day, two stories were being created, starting in Year 1 and being finished by Year 5, finally being performed by Year 6 at the assembly. Thanks to Mr Paul for organising the day.

In Foundation, parents were also encouraged to join a ‘reading café’ and spend time reading to their children. GIS is based in Ban Chang near Pattaya.
