Altrusa rewards literacy

Christine Lewis from the Cambridge Library entertained the award attendees with a chapter from The World’s Worst Children 3 by David Walliams, dressed as Aladdin.

Altrusa International Cambridge has been organising the Literacy Award night since 1992.  This year 23 children were nominated by local schools in Cambridge and 19 of those received their award at Cambridge East School on Tuesday, September 11.

Prior to receiving their awards, the children were entertained by Christine Lewis from the Cambridge Library who read a chapter from The World’s Worst Children 3, by David Walliams.

The awards were then presented by Jenny Shaw and Christine. Those children who were unable to attend will have their awards presented to them by their school. The purpose of this award is to recognise efforts of children whose reading and writing skills have improved to the best of their individual abilities.

This year’s award winners:

Katelyn Daly and Stacie Wilson (Cambridge East School); Georgia Mitchell (Cambridge Middle School); Liam Jarrett and Luke Molloy (Cambridge Primary School); Odhran Murphy and Maggie Shaw (Goodwood School); Riaka Mulvey-Griggs and Louis Hosie (Hautapu School); Gabriel Roberts and Ryan Duckworth (Karapiro School); Ruby Verran and Lachlan Harvey-Price (Kaipaki School); Alex Montaperto and Hugo Ewen (Leamington School); Teanna Hutchinson and Regan Trubshaw (Roto-o-Rangi School); Rory Harrison and Hee Dutron (St Peter’s Catholic School); Dylan Jackson-McClutchie and Katie Bell (Te Miro School); Payton Ellis and Asha Shipman (St Peter’s School).
