The DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) program started on the 7th of July, 2022. Learners of Stages 3 and 4 were excited and most of them started with books by Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl. Some started with reading simple stories from the Panchatantra Tales. The goal is to JUST READ and to our surprise there was absolute silence throughout the reading time as all were engrossed in their books.
