Be it the wizardary if “Harry Potter”, the hobbits of “The Lord of the Rings”, the superstitutious of “The Kitchen God’s Wife” or the poignant account from “The Diary of Anne Frank”, students of SFCC are getting a kaleidoscopic view of many writers. It is not uncommon to see keen readers making a beeline at the school library for books of their choice or discussing latest novels with their teachers and friends.
Students; disgruntled grumbles heard three years ago “Oh dear, not ”DEAR” again” has changed to their infectious enthusiasm of looking forward to the “DEAR” lessons two times each cycle. The whole school falls into silence when it reads. Believe me, you can hear a pin drop! Teachers and students leave their woes and worries aside and embrace a book. They then move beyond into the subliminal world of fantasy and utopia and savour the fine print on the many pages.
Since its inception three years ago, the “DEAR” programme has been growing in strength year by year and its popularity is evidenced by the escalating figures in book-borrowing habits of students, their many positive comments and the insightful book reports. “DEAR”, indeed, has become an integral part of the school and its curriculum and is here to stay at SFCC for years to come!
