15 Jun The World of Children’s Literature 29.6.17
At Hyden Primary School we believe that giving children access to all types of literature is extremely important for their success. Educators, parents, and community members should help students develop a love and passion for reading. Reading literature is important in developing cognitive skills to be able to succeed in a school or work setting.
Hyden Primary School invites you to attend an afternoon regarding the importance of quality children’s literature. Please see details below:
