Reading is Succeeding!

At Northern Junior School we believe that reading is succeeding.

Our school library is open after school every Tuesday and Thursday from 3.15- 3.45 pm for parents to help their children choose their reading and library books. You may wish to use the space to share a book with your child, or simply help them select something of interest. Comics, magazines and story CDs are also available to share in this time. Teachers will be in the school building, but all children should be supervised by an adult during this time.
