Our Community Reads

Our Community Reads logo

Summer 2014 saw the launch of the Our Community Reads initiative.

Our aim is to get everyone in Annan reading and talking about books.

Annan Academy and our cluster Primary schools are at the heart of the project but we want to get everyone – including local community groups and businesses, big and small – involved.

You may have already seen some of our pupils and staff wearing yellow ‘Our Community Reads’ lanyards around the town. You can have one too.

Why not let us know what you are going to do to promote reading and we will supply you with lanyards and wristbands for those taking part. Simply leave a comment on this page.

As part of the launch of  ‘Our Community Reads’ we opened up this year’s ‘Read Six Books in Six Weeks’ Summer Challenge to everyone in the school – staff and pupils – and to people in the wider community. As a result our Summer Challenge Booklet includes a much wider range of book reviews. By clicking on the picture below, you can read the reviews for yourself.
