Who We Are
“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
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.
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.
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.
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.
