Book week in Primary and fundraising event to send books to Malawi

Friday was the culmination of our book week. There were a lot of book related activities organised, in particular paired reading between different age-groups. There were also some fantastic book character costumes, showing enormous creativity!

This was a fund-raising event to pay for 500kg of books that we no longer use in our school to be sent to Malawi, where they will be distributed amongst some local Primary schools , where they currently have nothing more than the four walls of the classrooms.

Our children responded with great enthusiasm, setting themselves some pretty difficult reading challenges and collecting sponsorship for them.The children from Bendición and Azulinas, the classes where the books had come from, managed to raise just over 4000€.

We are all incredibly proud of their efforts and hope that along the way, as well as helping children in very different circumstances to their own, they have also developed their love of reading!
