"If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.” – Roald Dahl - children’s author


The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”


At St Joseph’s we  want every child to discover just how wonderful reading is!  Our library is full of excellent books just waiting to be read. Our sessions in the library give us opportunities to recommend  good books to one another. Our teachers read and share great books with us - they want each and every one us to love reading.


Talking about books we have enjoyed reading encourages other children to read them too!   We have many great, budding book reviewers in Rooms 6,5,4 and 3. As part of the special Library programme they are discovering wonderful books to read. Well done to all those students who are managing to read a chapter book each week.

***PARENTS...encourage your children to read every night - read to them and talk to them about the books they are reading***
