Miss Play 4 Pallavi Browne, a contestant in the Miss SVG 2022 pageant began her Miss SVG Community Service Project week of activities on Sunday by attending church services in her community of Georgetown and a forum on literacy at the Georgetown Secondary School.
Browne will be focusing on highlighting the importance of Literacy under the theme, “L.I.T.T. – Literacy Improvement through Transformative Teaching”.
The project aims to create an awareness of reading and spelling in both secondary and primary schools.
Students will take part in various reading and spelling activities throughout the week.
Books and other reading materials will be donated to the project through a partnership with the Hands Across the Seas organisation and other private donors.
The schools selected for the project are Georgetown Secondary School, Sandy Bay Secondary School, North Union Secondary School, George Stephens Sr Secondary School, Georgetown Government School, Langley Park Government School and Dickson Methodist School.
In addition to the activities at the schools, Browne is engaged with the National Public Library’s Online Story Time Programme and face-to-face story time where she reads stories to preschoolers every Monday.
The other activities scheduled for this week are, school visits on a consultation and workshop with parents and teachers, on Wednesday; reading and spelling competitions, on Thursday; and a literacy parade and extravaganza, on Friday. The project will culminate with a reading camp on Saturday.
