VV has more than 30 reading volunteers spread over 20 different schools and it was good to have a chance to meet up at Wesley Hall, Barnet last Friday. 16 volunteers came and, after short introductions by Pat and Jody, split up into groups to do a short schools-related quiz and then discuss some questions about their reading experiences.
These questions helped to get some good, interesting discussions going. This was followed by an opportunity to circulate, lubricated by tea, coffee and homemade scones, kindly provided by Adrienne King.
The volunteers appreciated the chance to meet each other and share experiences. All agreed that they really enjoyed their time in the schools and would definitely recommend becoming a school-reading volunteer.
