Park Primary is once again taking part in Readathon. Sponsorship forms have been sent home with children to try and raise money for this worthwhile cause. Please encourage your children to take part in this event. For more information, please visit – https://readforgood.org
Emma Jarvis, Arts Development Manager from Norwich and Norfolk Hospital explains why Read for Good’s work in hospitals is so vital; while the books and stories cheer up children in hospital, the ripple effects of our work on the wider hospital community are significant:
“The more comfortable our patients, the less anxious our visiting families. The less anxious our visiting families, the more time staff have to carry out other duties. Happier children attending operating theatres will spend less time in the anaesthetic room and will then wake up relaxed in recovery.
Read for Good has a significant impact throughout the hospital and throughout a patient’s journey from admission to discharge.”
I am an Assistant Headteacher at Park Primary School. I actually attended this school as a child and couldn’t think of anywhere better to work; I love teaching and think it a very rewarding job. I enjoy holidays away with my family and we love camping and being outdoors with our dog, Oscar.
