Story Time at Dublin School

A team of our employee’s enjoyed being reading buddies with children in Dublin. They celebrated the success of the programme with the students in a recent online Kinia graduation ceremony.

Raylene Downes, HOMS Assist Legal Executive, was thrilled to have taken part in the initiative and sent a video message to the students for their online graduation, commenting,

Through the online Kinia (formerly Suas) Reading Buddy Programme, children and volunteers logged on to a safe and secure hosting platform. Kinia is an Irish charity that provides reading support to children in Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools (DEIS) across Ireland.  Volunteers and children read along together, one-to-one, focusing on improving work, reading and comprehension skills. This scheme builds children's confidence in themselves and encourages them to believe in their own abilities. After our participants completed online training sessions and Garda vetting they took their places assisting sixth class students in a Dublin school, reading for 30 minutes, twice a week, for 8 weeks between April and June 2021.

We highly recommend this scheme for organisations looking for ways to provide their employees with rewarding corporate responsibility opportunities as well as contributing to children’s literacy and well being in Ireland. The children, schools and Kinia were an absolute pleasure to work with and we wish all the students well in their futures.

The firm are delighted to have supported this during the working day with the necessary equipment to read online with the children. If your organisation would like to become involved please visit www.kinia.ie.
