Registrations for the Ready Reading program are now open!
Reading is a powerful tool to help children grow their vocabulary, language skills and imagination. It helps children to develop life-long skills that will support their future growth and learning.
The previous Newman Government cut this program and one of our election commitments was to reintroduce Ready Reading to provide more opportunities for children to read.
We’re looking for an army of up to 3000 reading volunteers from across the state, who will be provided with free training to help Queensland students improve their literacy skills. The Ready Reading Program encourages students to develop a love of reading from a young age.
