To strengthen the school’s reading program and to develop in our students, teacher, and all personnel the love for reading, Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) has institutionalized the Uninterrupted Sustained Silent Reading (U.S.S.R.). In this activity, everyone in school drops whatever he/she is doing and reads as soon as the U.S.S.R. bell rings. This is done twice a month at a specified day and time. To support the program, a reading nook and mini-library have been set up in every classroom.
The first U.S.S.R. for Academic Year 2011-2012 held last June 27, 2011 was commendable. The students, teachers, and staff were observed to be enjoying the 30-minute school wide silent reading. The next U.S.S.R. is set on July 5, 2011.
