John Denham helped to launch Springhill Catholic Primary School’s reading week.
Mr Denham spoke at the school’s assembly to explain the importance of reading. Following this, Mr Denham read to a number of children aged 4-6 years and also talked about the books he enjoyed when he was younger.
Mr Denham said:
“Reading is a vital life skill. In most jobs it’s essential and that’s why it’s important we support the work of teachers, parents and guardians in helping children with their reading from an early age.
“I’m delighted to support the reading week at Springhill Catholic Primary School”.
