Hfs Reading Program

Dear Parents,


Hira Foundation School humbly launches the 'Hfs Reading Program'. This reading
program caters to grade levels from 1 to O' levels. This is an inter-campus reading
campaign primarily to generate and retain a lifelong interest in books.

Reading books is of paramount importance with multiple benefits like gathering ideas,
empowering imagination, developing strong comprehension and writing skills,
increasing vocabulary and transforming children into leaders insync with the saying,


The first blessed verse revealed in the Quran is 'Iqra' – Read:
'Read! In the name of your Lord Who has created,' (Surah 96 – Verse 1)
In line with this progressive vision, Hfs has initiated a reading program across primary
and secondary levels.

Morning time is allocated for reading at all levels. Students spend time reading age-
appropriate books.

DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time is from grades 1 till 5. From grades 3 till 5,
students engage in free writing where they bring diaries and express their ideas,
feelings, thoughts and reflections about the story they've read. This will unleash the
creativity within inshallah.

SQUIRT (Super Quiet Uninterrupted Individual Reading Time) is from grades 6 onwards
till O' levels inwhich the students read �� for pleasure. Weekly book reviews are
composed for reflection and reinforcement.

A reading log will also be maintained by the teachers. This will record how many pages
the student reads and duly signed by the reading monitor. The best readers will be
awarded additional marks and certificates.

Parents are advised to provide 20 minutes quality time for reading at home which will
enable them to acccomplish their reading goals. Students can bring books from home

A recommended reading list will also be sent and these books can then become part of
their book collection inshallah.
