First Minister’s Reading Challenge


Helen McKay (CLD Parent Worker) is leading the challenge to increase reading in the village of Plains. Parents are invited to come to a fun session with their P4-7 child on Tuesday afternoons between 1.30-2.50pm. If you are able to come, please sign up to help plan fun events to increase reading in the community.

As part of this work, there are plans to open a Parent’s Library in the school. If you have any books you could donate for this purpose, please hand them into the school and they will be passed to Helen.
