Summer Reading Challenge

At St. Mary’s School we pride ourselves on being a strong literacy school. We take our role of inspiring a love of reading very seriously!

One thing that we notice is that students who do not read over the summer tend to decline in their reading ability. This is known as ‘summer slide’.


To combat this regression we have created the St. Mary’s Summer Reading Challenge.  The challenge is to read several books over the summer.  We are challenging our students to read more and to read in different spots.  To build excitement for this we will be allowing students to enter draws for some exciting prizes in September!
