World Read Aloud Day

For 13 years, World Read Aloud Day has been honouring the joy of reading by challenging communities in more than 173 countries to read out loud. The global effort is celebrated annually and has been a long-standing tradition at ISN. Although parents were not allowed in the school to read this year due to COVID-19 regulations, teachers and learning partners came together this February for a morning assembly during which lps took turns reading in their mother tongues. Japanese, Flemish, and Georgian were just a few of the many languages heard at ISN that day! Our multilingual staff took turns reading to PY classes in Afrikaans, Croatian, Hindi and French while older lps visited classes and read to their younger counterparts in various languages. The event was a great way to celebrate our community’s multiculturalism and global identity!
