SCHOLASTIC ONE NATION READING TOGETHER
Spring Daleans become a part of nationwide reading activity
The students of Spring Dale Senior School joined their counterparts across the nation in an activity Scholastic One Nation Reading Together aimed at promoting the habit of reading books among the youth to emerge as effective future leaders. The formation that the students sat in during this activity echoed the prevailing sentiment ‘Reading is Joy’.
While the school encourages its students to inculcate the habit of reading as a routine, on Friday the students of classes I to XII pulled their favourite books off their shelves to bring them to school to partake of the reading activity. The students also took a pledge on this occasion of never giving up this habit and encouraging others as well to read to spread the light of literacy among the masses.
Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that the activity was held annually to enable students to understand the importance of inculcating a habit of reading. “One Nation Reading Together is a nationwide initiative in which millions of children, parents and teachers around the country spend a day celebrating the importance and enjoyment of reading,” he said.
Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Director and Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that in pursuance with the aim of promoting the habit of reading the school had a well-stocked library.
They maintained that the school also encouraged the habit of reading through the concept of ‘DEAR’ (Drop Everything and Read) time given by its founders late Dr Shivinder Singh Sandhu and Mrs Manveen Sandhu.
