It is World Book Day on the 7th of March and the Eco Council would like to set up an event to mark the occasion. As we are passionate about the environment, they have decided to REUSE books!

We would like children to bring in any books from home that they have now outgrown.

We will then resell these books to other children for 50p per book. Children that donate a book to be reused will get first choice when choosing a new one to take home.

The books donated could be fiction, non-fiction, comics, joke books or even annuals. They should be suitable for school age children and of an acceptable quality.

In our last School and Eco Council meeting we discussed what we would spend the money we raise on and it was agreed that we would enhance our reading corners in each class with some new books chosen by us.

Please bring your books in to school anytime from Monday 4th March until World Book day on Thursday 7th March. We will then be reselling these on Friday 8th March for 50p each.

We can’t wait to see how many books get brought in!

Thank you

The Eco-Council
