Started by Rotarian Michael Timmins in 2002, our Rotary Readers Group caters for junior Fairfield Primary School Students who are nominated by their teachers and who may need some ‘one on one’ help with their reading.

Our Readers, having nominated a chosen day and time, read with individual children for around fifteen minutes per child. In the 1½ hours that the Reader is there, he/she will deal with up to six children.

The teachers really do appreciate our efforts, the children usually show marked improvement throughout the year, and the Readers report a great sense of satisfaction and involvement from their valuable work.

As a natural follow-on from the year’s reading, Fairfield Rotary arranges the Children’s Christmas Party for all the classes from which the children come, (some 170 children). We provide the magic clown; Santa Claus; and of course his presents are all BOOKS!

The Readers Group is made up of Friends of Rotary, Rotary wives, as well as Rotary members and is always looking for volunteers with a couple of hours to spare once per week. If you are in a position to help, we would love to hear from you.
