18 girls from Taylor House and 14 boys from Selwyn House spent the morning reading to children at Otahuhu Primary, as part of the College’s Reading in Schools programme.

The initiative, led by Community Service Facilitator Rosemary Carrington has proved a huge success with the students finding the experience a worthwhile and effective way to give back to the local community.

“It’s a fun way to get involved with local schools and the kids are very cute,” says Rosie Sommerville (Year 12, Taylor) who has spent the past two mornings reading to children in a new-entrance class.

Each House will get the opportunity to take part in this initiative as the year goes on. 

Community service at the College is carried out through the Christianity at Work programme which creates opportunities for students to give their time and skills as service to others.
