For the love of literacy


Students read on a bench swing in the Cleveland Elementary courtyard.

NVSD staff and students dropped everything to read in recognition of B.C. School Library Day, October 26.

We saw how our teacher-librarians are currently rising to the challenge of supporting all learners in new and inventive ways.

Here is a look at literacy in action at some of our schools:

Cleveland Elementary took part in the Drop Everything and Read challenge. For 15 minutes, the entire student body, along with staff, read a book. It was quite something, and the school was so incredibly quiet, says Cleveland teacher-librarian Myriam Dumont.

At Eastview Elementary, the literacy train has left the station bound for classrooms. Teacher-librarian Kate Tapping was surprised with the 'train,' complete with a whistle, authentic squeaky wheels and, of course, stacks of books, by one of her classes. "The train makes having library in the classroom a little more exciting, especially for the primary students. I love seeing their little faces when I roll into the classroom! " says Ms. Tapping.
