Paint Shellharbour REaD
What is Paint Shellharbour REaD?
It is a Shellharbour City focused strategy that encourages all areas of the community to read, talk, sing and rhyme with children from birth, so that they will be ready for reading and writing at school.
Research shows that the foundational early literacy skills learnt before starting school are critical for attaining literacy competency at school, which in turn is vital for life’s successes.
Paint Shellharbour REaD is excited to work collaboratively with government, non-government and commercial stakeholders to get the early literacy message out to the many families caring for pre-school aged children.
A busy family friendly city with a high population of families raising young children, Shellharbour hosts many community events that the Paint Shellharbour REaD reading tent is being welcomed to, along with its reading champions ready to sit and read with eager young children.
