Reading is Fundamental

Starting in 1997 a pilot project underway at Connaught Public School Program was designed to encourage and promote literacy in children ages four and five from families where English or French is not spoken at home. Twenty-five Kiwanis volunteers read to these children from age and content appropriate books each week. At the end of the school year, the children may choose one of the books to retain. All materials and volunteers are supplied by the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa.
