Readathon November and December 2012
English Dept. /Library
What is Readathon?
Readathon aims to promote whole school reading and also collect money for charity as some girls are sponsored to read by family and friends. It takes place at St Saviour’s every year in the second half of the Autumn term.
As part of it girls in lower school (and staff) read during the last 20 minutes of lesson 4 everyday for one week, whatever lesson they’re in.
The library held a Bookfair (new books - discounted to only £1 or 2.00 each) making £65 for the charity, and the total amount raised was a very good £450.
Where the money goes:
The money raised by Readathon is donated equally to CLIC Sargent and The Roald Dahl Foundation, who between them spend it primarily caring for children and young people in the UK suffering from cancer, Hodgkin's disease, leukaemia, epilepsy, blood disorders or acquired brain injury.
