East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure have been delighted to host Read Aloud sessions in libraries this month
Primary Two pupils from across East Renfrewshire who are part of a specialist reading initiative have been celebrating their reading achievements by reading to each other, library staff and special guests.
The pupils are part of the Reading Recovery programme, which was introduced in East Renfrewshire to provide additional support for children who find reading challenging.
We celebrated their achievements at a recognition event in Barrhead Foundry library on February 15th and further events have been taking place in libraries. Special guests included Capital radio DJ Garry Spence, David Currie from BBC Sport, Clyde 1 presenter Cassi, and local author Lizzie Finnigan.
