Our school library needs your help!

Thanks to fantastic support from parents at our Book Fairs we have an amazing stock of books in our school library  .We need your help to organise the   library resources so that the children can access books more easily because  the space is tidy and well organised .

Hopefully with a team of parent volunteers, we can  organise the fiction books in alphabetical order and re -arrange the non fiction into appropriate subject categories .

Our plan is to close the library to all classes on the week beginning Monday 3 February to  ensure that the re organisation can happen efficiently.

If you are able to help at any time during that week  please contact the  school office on 665 2024 and leave details of when you are available or catch Mrs Dixon at the P3 door at the start or end of day .

If interested  parents could meet with Mrs Dixon on Monday 3 February at 10 am to set up the re-organisation and plan rota of volunteers that would be greatly appreciated.

Remember the more volunteers -the quicker and easier the job and every little bit will help !

Thanks in advance for your support with this !
