1. Supporting Reading at Home

This programme is open to parents, caregivers, and children aged 5 to 11. Participants will learn techniques to assist their children in reading a diverse selection of texts. The first two sessions are for parents and caregivers, and children will join the remaining four sessions for interactive reading activities.

2. Creative Writing Together

This programme is designed for parents, caregivers, and children aged 7 to 14. Participants will engage in collaborative creative writing sessions, exploring various settings, characters, and plots, and experimenting with different perspectives within their story universe.
