Dear Parent /Guardian

World Book Day fell on Thursday 2nd March this year and to celebrate and raise much needed funds for our school library I have organized a Book Fair to take place in our Library on Tuesday 21st March 2017.

Throughout the school day pupils will be given the opportunity to visit the library and buy a book. The Book Fair will be stocked by Scholastic Book Fairs and a broad range of titles will be available as well as a selection of posters and stationery.

There will also be a limited quantity of £1.00 fiction titles specially written for World Book Day and each Year 8, 9 and 10 pupil can get one of these or they can use the £1 voucher as part payment of any book from the Book Fair stock. (The £1 books and the vouchers will be made available at the Book Fair)

We all know how important and enjoyable reading is and for a child, becoming a reader for life, depends on the range and quality of books available to them.  A recent study by the National Literacy Trust states “…. that reading for pleasure by the age of 15 is the single biggest indicator of future success “

I hope you will allow your child to join in the fun by encouraging him/her to participate and at the same time contribute to helping us raise much needed funds for the school library.

Yours sincerely

Mrs D Morroi

School Library Coordinator
