About Kids Read

The purpose of KIDS READ is to foster a love of reading, to encourage young people to explore all genres of literature, and enjoy a wide range of books written by authors around the world. 
The spirit of KIDS READ is to try and involve students in this literary experience.
From nursery rhymes, picture books to classic children’s titles and contemporary titles, suitable for students aged 11-14 years. 

Although KIDS READ is a competitive activity, students will enjoy the group and individual journey and the joy of reading.
