Panbai International School organised a ‘One Nation Reading Together’ event in school on 28th November, 2016. The activity commenced with a reading pledge written by the famous author, Ms. Uma Krishnaswami. Many children read Newspaper, Fiction/Non Fiction books such as Biographies and Encyclopedias and while others read from their Text books. A pleasant calm and silence engulfed the school as each and every member engrossed themselves in the reading activity. This activity was organized to encourage reading, acquaint children with new books and experience the pleasure and joy of reading together in silence. In this fast moving world where electronic gadgets have taken over the reigns, it is important to keep alive the enriching habit of reading. Students have benefited from this activity and soon would be transformed from amateur readers to avid readers. The activity ended by the students penning their thoughts on the graffiti wall.
