Pupils at West End Primary School can now enjoy a mini-library, donated to enhance their schooling experience.

Launched on Thursday last week, the donated educational resources will be used by the school library in partnership with Wordworks in helping and supporting the early language and literacy learning of pupils at West End.

The goods were sponsored by Introstat, an IT company.

Denise Amos, a teacher and librarian at the school, says: “By sharing our materials with Wordworks we seek to ensure that all our children can learn to read and write successfully. I am a firm believer in the power of books to advance the minds of our pupils and expand their understanding of the world.

“The mini-library will efficiently help in inculcating the love for reading and, hand in hand, we can reach our objective of encouraging everyone to read,” she says.

Principal Clive Arries agrees: “We believe in the uniqueness of each child and hold the belief that each child can develop into the best individual by offering quality education.We are extremely grateful towards Introstat for this donation, which will aid us in reaching our goal of ensuring that each child in our school advances at a sound literary level.”
