Twenty years is a good, long time. Through trials and tribulations, joy and success, the Trench Town Reading Centre has soldiered on through two interrupted decades. Twenty years of educating the children of Trench Town – and that’s education in the broadest sense of the word. Planting trees, creating art of all kinds, playing drums, spelling bees, listening and learning. During the summer program, the Centre is humming with activity.
Most importantly, the Trench Town Reading Centre has brought the fascination and love of reading to the children. Just watch them when a new book arrives. They cluster round it, turning the pages slowly and carefully, studying the illustrations. A book is a discovery, a small treasure.
So now, the Centre celebrates (with the kind sponsorship of the Scotiabank Foundation, who are steady supporters). Drop by on Saturday, November 23 between 12:00 noon and 4:00 p.m. for music, poetry, performances and sheer enjoyment with the kids. They love visitors, and if you want to bring a book or something to read or perform… They are the greatest audience!
