School Wins £10,000 Book Token
Fir Vale School’s Learning Resource Centre has won a fabulous £10,000 grant from the Foyle Foundation to buy new reading books.
“The Foundation were impressed by our application and with the success of our ‘reading for pleasure’ campaign,” said Ms Leigh, Learning Resource Centre Manager. “This is a valuable gift, which means our LRC will be vastly improved to help students develop their English. Everyone in school will benefit from exciting books.”
This has been a record breaking year for the LRC as over 4,890 books were loaned out between September and the end of November with nearly half of these loans being made by boys.
