The Literacy Team at Education Scotland is hosting a free conference for parents and would be grateful if you could make this information available to parents.
Once children have mastered the basics of learning to read, many parents are concerned about how best to develop their child’s skills and encourage a love of books. The conference will support parents in helping children to successfully negotiate an information rich world and to become readers for life.
Nicola Morgan, the award-winning author, will deliver the keynote address. The conference will explore some of the perceived barriers to reading and discuss how parents can best support their children.
If there is sufficient demand, limited creche facilities may be available.
To register for the event call Margaret McGuiness on 0141 282 5064.
Further conferences are being planned to take place in Edinburgh and Inverness later this year.
