The pupils of Brookhouse had a very great idea in November, 2017- they were going to help the pupils of Kasarini Primary School, which is just 100m away, get a library in their school.

A Library for Kasarini

We were at King'eero Primary School on 6th February 2018 during a library lesson to collect feedback on the utilization of the books and impact of the library on student performance.

King'eero Library visit report

This is Africa’s largest gathering of children reading aloud from the same text and at the same time in multiple locations. The event is conducted bi-annually: a New Year edition in January and on the Day of the African Child in June. It is a 15-minute expressive and interesting reading exercise, where children from different schools across the country read the same text at the same time. Reading aloud with students provides an enjoyable, shared experience of written language, which can form the foundation for further language and reading development
