Who We Are

REach

Race for Education Accessibilities for Every Child (“REACH”) is a registered education charity whose mission is to create a reading movement amongst primary schools in Hong Kong. By spreading a reading culture across the city, we aim to transform the lives of marginalized students through a love for reading.

“It is not true that ‘we have only one life to live’; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.”
― S.I. Hayakawa

What We Do

A Reading Programme for Every Primary School in Need

REACH started its pilot REACH Reading Club programme with Lok Sin Tong Primary School in May 2014

01.

School-wide Storytelling

We held weekly grade-wide interactive storytelling sessions based on lesson readers.

These wonderful REACH Reading Ambassadors will then become ambassadors of reading to Primary 1 and 2 students. They will help promote and teach reading to encourage a reading culture in school.

02.

Reading Ambassador (RA) Programmes

REACH teachers would train these little ambassadors based on a set of materials focusing on a popular children’s book, as well as a curriculum that covers a broad range of language skills, including creative writing activities, grammar concepts and exercises, vocabulary building, and reading comprehension practices. 

03.

Battler of Books (BOB) P3+P4

This is a battle of knowledge and wit as students from Primary 3 and 4 clash with their fellow peers in a book competition. Each take turn to perform their class-favorite books in a short yet excitement-filled competition.

Our Programmes

The REACH Reading Club Project

REACH started its pilot REACH Reading Club programme with Lok Sin Tong Primary School in May 2014. Situated in Kowloon City, Lok Sin Tong Primary School was founded in 1949 by The Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society, a charity group. For over 50 years, the school has maintained a reputation for education excellence. Its diverse student population has a high concentration of students matching REACH’s target students, e.g. those from families receiving social benefits or education subsidies from the government, and those who are new immigrants from China and Southeast Asia.
