One Nation Reading Together

The students read out the pledge specially written for this event by the celebrated award-winning author Jerry Pinto. They celebrated reading as a pleasurable and enjoyable activity. The entire school community enjoyed the participation in the event including students, teachers, support staff as well as admin department. Beautiful thoughts and expressions about books and reading were written on the ‘Graffiti Walls’ by different range of readers. The One Nation Reading Together campaign was launched by Scholastic in 2008 and is now a nationwide initiative in which millions of children, parents and teachers across the country spend a day to make reading fun, fostering good reading habits among the children. In 2016, an estimated 2,000 schools around the country participated in this event. The most special thing about ONRT is that for every school that participates in the event, Scholastic India will donate 100 books to the library of a needy school. Overall it was a knowledgeable and enriching experience.
