Nechako Elementary School held a Literacy Night on Thursday, February 12th. The Gym, the Multipurpose Room and one of the classrooms were utilized to hold a carnival of reading, showcase projects done by the students and readings, which were done by members of the community.
“We decided to do a bunch of activities related to literacy. Our staff pitched in and we thought it was important to promote literacy not just in our school but in our community,” said Principal David Mills.
Carnival games included a fishing pond, obstacle course, bingo and musical reading chairs. There were also stations promoting anti-bullying, how to read to your children and technology and literacy.
Michele Frater, Nechako Elementary School Librarian told us literacy is important because it gives people skills and opportunity as well as pleasure.
“We’re very happy that Nechako Families came out to support their school and their children,” said Frater.
