This is part of a week of celebrations centred on a love of books. We had special book based activities in English lessons and the week culminated in a non uniform day in aid of Book Aid International Prizes were awarded to the most convincing book characters in each year group!
Book Aid International is a charity which understands that literacy is the key to successful learning. It provides essential reading material for children in Sub Saharan Africa and Palestine who have no access to books. Once they can read, children can take charge of their own learning and have a better chance of escaping from poverty, ill health and starvation. Newminster has been supporting this worthwhile charity for nine years.
