‘Kids Read’ programme

We are delighted to announce that HSBC Corporate Sustainability and British Council will run a further year of this successful primary reading for pleasure project. We aim to work with further groups of teachers, children and parents.

The project is planned to roll out in February to early March during academic year 2016/17, and run for the rest of the semester, ending early July 2017. The project components and activities are slightly updated for the new round.

Strands continue to include a children’s fiction book collection and materials, professional development sessions for teachers, community events for parents and children with the support of school teachers and HSBC volunteers, and competitions to engage the participating communities of children.

If you like more information about the project, please contact us at teacher.training@britishcouncil.org.hk.
