Thinking of Others – ‘Readathon’

Each school year as part of our Reading Festival we participate in the Readathon campaign organised as part of Children’s Book Week in the United Kingdom.

Our pupils, from Maternelle 3/Grande Section to 7ème/CM2 ask their Mums and Dads and other members of their family to sponsor them during a week in October.  The pupils try to read as many books as they can and then collect a small sum from each sponsor for each book read.

All this usually adds up to a considerable sum which we send off to the Readathon organisation who invests it in the Malcolm Sargent Cancer Care for Children and the Roald Dahl Foundation which also assists victims of cancer and other illnesses.
