We have had a delivery of boxes and boxes of books from both Marist Sisters’ College Woolwich and Cerdon College Merrylands for our schools. It has been a delight to see the faces of the children and teachers as they open the boxes and see so many beautiful books, from picture books and novels to a great selection of Reference books and Encyclopedias. This is a wonderful donation that is greatly appreciated.
The teacher Librarian and myself have been going through the books to organise them into categories for distribution within the schools here in the parish. These books will not only serve the schools but will also be a great help to the young people who are beginning to finish their schooling through Distant Education. We are in the process of setting up a Distant Education Correspondence Centre to enable young people, and the not so young, to finish their schooling. We are still at the initial stages but there has been a good response to our second pre-entry test.
