FINCO Reads

FINCO Reads aims to increase English proficiency amongst primary school students.

  • To date over 6,000 primary school students have participated in FINCO Reads Activity Fairs, supported by financial industry volunteers.

FINCO Reads has been developed to make reading in English more engaging for primary school students. This is done by providing teachers with training and best practice toolkits for the classroom, as well as supporting out-of-classroom activities that encourage students to read more. FINCO provides training, resources and funding whilst financial institutions provide volunteers for English activity fairs which run in all FINCO schools.
