Badgemore School children would like to thank everyone who donated books on World Book Day for their library.
The World Book Day donation initiative was organised by residents Frances and Amelia Oldershaw who received hundreds of books from the local community. Their plan is to make this an annual event.
Pupil, Hudson, said, “The library didn’t have as many books and there’s lots more books now. I was really pleased to see this Dr Seuss Classics set. Max added, “I feel really happy about having these books as I really like reading books. It’s one of my favourite things to do. I love the Wimpy Kid books.”
Erin Banks, Teaching Assistant in Maple Class said, “We had a lot of books before but they were old (some with pages missing) and out of date and it’s really nice for the kids to have books that are updated that they like to read and some parents have been in to rearrange the library so it is much more spacious and inviting. It’s made a huge difference to have the new books, we’re really really grateful and it’s wonderful.”
Headteacher, Tim Hoskins added, “Reading is so important for every child. It just allows children to escape and dive into an exciting new world. We are so grateful for people sharing the books that they have read and giving the children the opportunity to read new books.”
