St. George's Literacy Project
St. George’s is very much the hub of our local community and we take great pride in engaging and supporting people that live, work and shop in Harrow. We do this in many ways, providing a safe, secure and welcoming environment for people to spend time as well as interacting with local schools, community groups and charities throughout the year.
Last year we embarked on a unique and exciting project, with the aim to improve literacy for local primary school children and encourage more children in our community to read and write stories for fun.
Our author, David, has been working with local school children to create a children’s story book featuring real life stories from the children at Roxeth Primary, Roxbourne Primary and St George's Catholic Primary Schools, with the ultimate aim to raise funds to provide literacy support for primary school children in our borough, via our charity of the year, Coram Beanstalk
You can purchase your copy from our Vending Machine (located next to Heriot Cakes). Card payments only please.
It is also available for download at Amazon. 70% of the proceeds will help support reading in primary schools in and around Harrow.
A huge thank you to all the children from Roxeth Primary, Roxbourne Primary and St. George's Catholic Primary School who participated in the creative workshops.
