We are delighted to have been awarded funding from the AAP 4 Together Partnership for a brand new project called ‘Off the Page’. The project will be aimed at young people aged 3 to 13.
Using performing arts techniques we will build enthusiasm for reading, raise literacy levels and help to bring books to life. The 12 week programme will run after school and on weekends. We will engage young people in weekly workshops and people from the community at weekend performances.
The main focus for this project is to:
- Teach literacy skills to ensure a better start for young people.
- Increase awareness of a healthy lifestyle via practical literacy activities.
- Provide an opportunity for families to come together and interact through a community event.
We are passionate in our aim to address literacy levels in young people and wish to thank the AAP 4 Together Partnership for supporting our initiative.
