Reading has always been a priority at Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School in Netherton, but since March the school has become more mindful as many of their pupils were not able to access books and regularly reading.
The school is in the middle of constructing a new library, which is well underway, and has been described as perfectly timed to help pupils.
Headteacher, Claire McKinnon said: “As part of the library construction, we are launching a scheme entitled ‘100 books’ which incorporates 100 books that pupils should read before they leave primary school.
“Pupils will also receive a very special library card which can keep record of the books they have read.
“We have been scouring book shops across the country for these books, which were put into a list by the TES in 2015.
“Our PTA has also helped us source a vending machine which dispenses books with a very special gold coin!”
