WITH Queensland Education Week under way, Warwick East State School has jumped on the band-wagon with the aim of encouraging its student to read.

East SS head of curriculum Alicia McMillan said the buddy reading session held yesterday was designed to incorporate Queensland Education Week with the National Year of Reading.

"We tried to incorporate as much reading into this week as we could and (yesterday) everyone was reading in their different grade groups," she said.

"One example is we have the Year 7s leading groups of Year 4s and preps."

Year 7 teacher Michael Sullivan said the 30 minute activity was a great opportunity for all the ages groups.

"Last week we introduced all the groups to each other so the preps would know who their leaders were," he said.

"They have all been excited since then and the Year 7s have put a lot of effort into their book choices and accompanying activities.

"We have a whole variety of book from fairies, to Australian animals, to dinosaurs and fairytales.

"It is good to get fun things happening around books."

Mr Sullivan said the activity was also a chance for the different year levels to interact and get to know each other.

"We have received a good response from all the grades and they have gotten really involved," he said.
