Students from Papakura High school, Anthony and Narra, who once attended Kelvin Road School, returned this week, to explain how reading has helped them become successful learners. Both Anthony and Narra are in their last year of high school and have enjoyed a love of reading, inspired during their time at Kelvin Road.
Captain Under Pants and The Philosophers Stone were just two of the books the boys enjoyed. “Reading helps you to learn, it can make you smarter and is a great habit to have” claimed Narra, who is looking to go on to university next year.
Anthony is already planning on going overseas to study to become a chef and says, “Reading is so important and can help you succeed for life.”
Why don’t you pick up a book and see what you can find out.
