High-flying students have been working to encourage their peers to love literacy.

The Year 11 pupils from Lytham St Annes Technology College have created resources like a grammatical globe, planned assemblies and even made their own film.

The film focuses on highlighting the benefits of reading, using the slogan CARIE - communication, applicable to other subjects, relaxation, intelligence and entertainment.

The girls have spent the last school term working in the library on the Buddy Reading Scheme and offering assistance in classrooms.

Volunteer Joanne Cook, 16, said: “This has been an excellent opportunity to develop our own skills in literacy whilst assisting others.”

Adam Prescott, co-ordinator, said: “Next year we hope to expand on the scheme with volunteers, including boys.”
