City of Gosnells Paint the Highway REaD

26 Jun 2018

Maddington Central is proud to support Paint the Highway REaD.

Paint the Highway REaD is our local version of the Paint the Town REaD campaign.

Cities of Armadale, Gosnells, and Canning have come together to promote the early literacy message at the heart of this program; for all levels of the community to read, talk, sing and rhyme with babies and children anywhere and everywhere.

The project starts with an egg which visits local events and places such as festivals, libraries, schools, shopping centres and playgroups. Children can help the egg grow by reading, singing or rhyming to it, just like a growing brain. A reading mascot is then born from the egg and will appear out and about in the community to continue promoting positive early literacy messages.
