Reading at College Town
We encourage our children to develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information. We guide the children to appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage, becoming enthusiastic and critical readers. Above all, we aim to inspire our children to be life-long readers and authors, who read and write for pleasure.
