Could you become a schoolreader?

Story posted on

SCHOOLS in Westbury are in need of volunteers to listen to pupils read in order to improve their literacy levels. 

Schoolreaders, a charity who provide free one-to-one reading practice to children in primary schools, are after volunteers in Westbury to help. 

They say, “To become a volunteer you will need a good command of English and a bit of spare time each week of the school year. We ask that you commit for a minimum of a year. 

“Schoolreaders will match you to an appropriate local school. Our volunteers really enjoy being schoolreaders; 99% say they would recommend the scheme to someone considering volunteering. 

“If you would like to join us and make a real difference to a child’s life you can find out more, and register, at www.schoolreaders .org.”
