🎬🏅Inter-School Reading Quiz TV Show
Get ready for an exciting twist! The Inter-School Reading Quiz is gearing up for its own TV show, just like the fantastic Kaneval Diaries!🎉 This program is all set to capture the visual journey of our friendly reading competition, spotlighting the joy and impact of reading.✨ Stay tuned! It’s going to air (tentatively) on TV3 in the first quarter of 2024. It’s not just a show, it’s an adventure full of the thrill that comes with diving into the world of books!💫
Kanéval, organised by Perbi Cubs, a proud official partner of UNESCO Accra World Book Capital (AWBC) 2023, is all about spreading the joy of reading! We’re on a mission to make reading exciting and accessible, especially for children in basic schools who are yet to discover the adventure of immersing in a good book. Join us as we celebrate the wonders of stories and the power of literacy!💫📚.
🤔Unfortunately, reading for pleasure is not really valued in our society. Instead of seeing it as the superhero skill, it is often treated like a chore, a punishment or even a necessary evil. Changing that mindset is a tough nut to crack!😥
Now here’s the secret: the love for reading is like a superpower!💫 📃Research says it loud and clear, that the love for reading is a stronger indicator of a child’s success in school and their future career than even their parents’ level of education and socioeconomic status!📖✨
Kanéval? It’s a creative mix of “carnival” and the Ga word “kané,” which means “to read!”📚🌟 Our special tool to tackle the root cause of the literacy problem by promoting the joy of reading. Kanéval boasts of an impressive lineup of events, from awesome in-person gatherings, to epic online happenings, Kanéval’s got something for every cub! 🎈🏰💻
Kanéval kicked off its launch on 11th May 2023 at Alpha Beta Education Centres, home to one of Perbi Cubs’ several, amazing digital libraries.💻📖 In attendance were dignitaries from the Ministry of Education, UNESCO, AWBC, Reach for Change, and the Mastercard Foundation.✨ Vibrant learners from the Dansoman B Cluster of Schools were also present.❣️
🚌As our Kanéval bus keeps rolling from school to school, guess what’s brewing?⚗️ The Kanéval Diaries🎥 – a vibrant TV show capturing every epic moment of our bookish adventure packed with fun activities!🥳🎉 Brace yourselves for 2024 because we’re dropping not one, but TWO seasons, each packed with 13 episodes of reading fun!😄 Tune in to Joy Prime TV (tentatively) as we kick off the first season in early 2024, with the second one slated for later in the year. Get set to binge-watch the joy of Kanéval right from your screens!📺📱
