Principal stresses importance of reading program
Woy Woy Public School Principal Ms Ona Buckley, has urged parents and carers to not let their children fall behind in the school's home reading program.
"It is so important for us to read to children and, when they are ready, have them read to us.
"Being able to read is the key to all learning," Ms Buckley said.
"You cannot even operate a computer if you cannot read what to do or where to find things.
"Our home reading program is designed to encourage children to read every night.
"Reading opens a whole world of travel, world history, science and outer space, either in a factual or fictional way, which stimulates the imagination.
"The world is now at your fingertips with the aid of an internet search engine but you still need to be able to read and understand the information."
