Giv­ing lit­er­acy a win­ning boost

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Judges have gath­ered for the spring re­launch of the Kent Lit­er­acy Awards.

The awards cel­e­brate the most ex­cit­ing themes and projects used by schools to help pupils build key com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills that will set them up for life. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from chil­dren’s lit­er­acy char­ity Beanstalk, Gold­ing Vi­sion (part of Gold­ing Homes), McCabe Ford Wil­liams, and KM Fa­cil­i­ties Man­age­ment Group joined or­gan­is­ers the KM Char­ity Team at the venue to make a fi­nal call for en­tries.

Leigh Jones of Ash­ford-based McCabe Ford Wil­liams said: “A key part of our busi­ness is work­ing with schools and acad­e­mies and it’s nice to be able to give some­thing back. As a pro­fes­sion peo­ple usu­ally be­lieve we’re more to do with num­bers than let­ters, but a key part of our busi­ness is com­mu­ni­ca­tion with clients and ob­vi­ously that can only be achieved through good com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.”

Nom­i­na­tions for the 18 cat­e­gories can be sub­mit­ted by any mem­ber of school staff, pupils or par­ents.
