Scholes Reading Champion

Sunday 21 April 2024

In January, Leeds School Library Services set a competition to search for KS2 Reading Champions.  They were looking for children who advocate for reading within their school and those that encourage others to develop a love of reading.  Schools were invited to nominate one person and we nominated Olivia from Year 5.  Olivia is not only one of our school librarians but she also supports younger children in developing their reading skills.  She also has a real passion for reading for pleasure.

Whilst Olivia was not the winner on this occasion, the library service emailed school to say just how impressed they were with Olivia’s entry.

“Olivia’s love of reading shines through and the judges were very impressed with all the work that she puts into ensuring that the library is a welcoming space for other children. It is also fantastic that Olivia supports KS1 children with their reading, hoping to instill in them the same passion for books that she has…she certainly is a star!”

Olivia, we’re very proud of you.  Well done – you are definitely a Scholes Reading Champion.
