Tarlac high school launches reading campaign

Dapdap High School (DHS) in Bamban town in Tarlac province is working to improve the reading skills of its learners to raise their interest and appreciation for reading.

As part of the Reading Month Celebration last month, the school conducted a series of reading sessions for frustrated readers, disinterested readers, or learners with disabilities.

According to DHS Head Teacher III Lorna Castro, the reading activities, along with their invited reading ambassadors, will help in stirring the students’ interest and love for reading.

“Reading is very important. Among all the skills that you are supposed to enhance, make sure that you improve your reading skill,” she said in a Philippine Information Agency report.

“Once you have this skill, everything will follow. Please do not end one day without reading a book or anything,” Castro said.

Among the invited guests to serve as reading ambassadors was PIA Tarlac Information Center Manager Trixie Joy Manalili.

Manalili stressed reading a good investment to one’s self as it creates an opportunity to see things in a different light.

“Reading has a lot of benefits especially to you as students. It improves your vocabulary and sentence construction, widens your imagination, and produces new learning. Consider reading as a fun way to discover and learn new things. Find that book that will make you fall in love with reading,” she said.
