Christmas party for little readers

FOURWAYS - Ripple Reading based in Monaghan Farm, Lanseria hosted their second annual Christmas party and this year’s Christmas party brought tidings of goodwill and joy to the Blair Atholl Farm School.

 

Ripple Reading is a registered non-profit company which focuses on literacy and leadership development of children within disadvantaged communities. They are building a model of effective intervention to teach children to read with understanding, as well as assisting disadvantaged schools by providing literacy training to identified children who are reading below their age-appropriate level.

Ripple Reading focuses on the meaningful interpretation of written words, which involves the acquisition of the necessary skills that will improve reading ability.

There was a fun-filled event which was attended by 744 children who were treated to a number of activities which included baking, face painting, nail art, football and netball. Ripple Reading volunteers catered to the children’s every need, as there was no shortage of food, gifts or love.

“The volunteers, organisers and sponsors did a remarkable job of making Ripple Reading’s Christmas party the success it was,” Riana Robinson from Ripple Reading said.

“Most importantly, it was these children who made the day a possibility. They came and poured out their love on everyone who came into contact with them, adding value to the life of each person who served them.”

The Ripple Reading team thanked all the sponsors for their continued support. “Without your sponsorships throughout the year we would not be able to help others in need,” Robinson said.
