The best thing about Paint the Town REaD is the sense of community.
The idea behind the name is that painting the town red carries the feeling of celebration. Bringing the community together with excitement and enthusiasm.
That’s the literacy culture we strive to create.
Inspiring change, positive action and inclusive events for everyone in the community.
Our diverse communities all run differently but with a strong vision underpinning everything they do: all children will start school ready to learn.
We provide support to bring together community groups, agencies and businesses to make PTTR a reality. It’s exciting to see what develops and the creativity of everyone involved.
Ours is a growing, nationwide network of PTTR communities, making a difference in local communities. Bringing about lasting change and brighter futures for children.
Paint The Town REaD is set up to give each location an opportunity to customise the program to suit their community. Evolving with each new group.
What I truly love about the program is the open and willing flow of information from existing Paint The Town REaD to new Paint The Town REaD…… there doesn’t appear to be any withholding of ideas or ‘what we did is best’.PTTR Community Co-ordinators
Everyone was happy to help, advise and share their ideas and experiences.
This is a very rare thing to experience and I’m sure is one of the many reasons why Paint The Town REaD communities are popping up all over the country and have such a great following. It is genuinely encouraging and enabling opportunities for reading with children, there is no hidden agenda and THAT’S GREAT!
