Daily Reading Programme (P1 to P6)

Reading is an integral part of our strategy. Students taking Tamil Language read their mother tongue books, every morning for 15 mins.  This reading is internalized by the students when they are selected to share with their class on their readings. In this way, the students read for understanding and would be able to use the vocabulary learnt in their compositions.
