On Monday, October 17, 2016 Harrington Sound Primary School celebrated Literacy Day.

Students dressed up in bright, colourful characters from their favourite book and filled our assembly hall. Some were magical and others were scary — which captured everyone’s attention.

Students sat and sang to the words of Proud to be Bermudian, which eased their minds, considering the devastation that some experienced through Hurricane Nicole.

It was a positive fun-filled environment for the students in attendance.

Several students were asked what “Literacy” means to them and they replied by saying, “knowing how to read and write!” A selection of students from P5 Allen’s class read quotes that they loved. They were as follows: “Literacy is the bridge from Misery to Hope” by Kofi Annan, “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free” by Frederick Douglas and finally “There is no such thing as a child who hates to read, they have just not found the right book.”
