THE written word will be able to be spread further thanks to students at a Felpham school.
Pupils at Felpham Community College are encouraged to enjoy a good book on a regular basis. The school’s library gives them access to a large number of books.
As the library’s selection is constantly updated and some books could be reused, Year 7 students donated old stock to charity.
Head teacher Mark Anstiss said: “Our students are very lucky with the resources they have available to them on a day-to-day basis.
“This was an ideal opportunity for the school to donate to a worthwhile charity and for our students to take the time to appreciate and acknowledge the advantages they have available to them.”
The books have been donated to BookBridge a social enterprise that starts learning centres in rural Mongolia and Cambodia.
It helps 11 learning centres provide English books for children and young adults, as well as books in the local language, within a welcoming environment.
