Lindsay Codd, deputy sector manager for English and the Performing Arts, thanked Tronox, a global company based on Humber Bank, for its support in funding the program.

“This reading program is creating a wave of excitement among our Grade 7 students,” she said.

“It reverberates throughout the school from the moment the books are selected until the moment they are distributed for reading.

“We are grateful to Tronox for their wonderful support of the program. “

Children received free books to help them expand their reading at Healing High School.

Tronox spokesperson Rebecca Kirvan-Rodgers said she was excited to help Healing School with Bookbuzz.

“Having access to books and reading regularly is such an important experience for growing children, and the ability to read is a vital skill,” she said.

“We know that it is unfortunately not always easy for children to have access to books at home.

“So as we lend our support, we hope we can do our part in fostering a love of reading by giving all the children entering Grade 7 Healing School a book of their own. “
