Reading Together @ South West is an initiative by the South West Community Development Council to promote bilingualism through reading, as well as encourage quality family bonding time as a community. With support from the Lee Kuan Yew Fund for Bilingualism, library corners will be set up at 17 Residents' Committee (RC) centres around the district, and the new RC reading corners will also be used for monthly storytelling sessions and other culturally based family activities.
On 1 September 2018, through collaboration with Singapore Book Council, our founder Miss Liang Huiyu conducted a storytelling training workshop for the storytelling volunteers from South West CDC. She shared her expertise and knowledge on children's picture books, as well as storytelling techniques that could engage the audience and make storytelling sessions fun, enriching and meaningful.
We look forward to the upcoming sessions with them!
