Elmhurst wins the Summer Reading Challenge!

It was with great excitement that the Newham Library Service informed the school that out of all the schools locally that participated, Elmhurst came first in the Green Street area in the Summer Reading Challenge. A staggering 745 children joined the challenge over the summer holiday, which was 78% of the school roll and 228 children finished (24% of the school roll). Our reading for pleasure drive is really taking shape and in Winter 2019 and Summer 2020, we hope to build on this success! Don’t forget to take your children to the local library to sign up for the Winter Reading Challenge this holiday.
