After the success of the Reading Rocks festival held for a four-week period during spring term, I am pleased to announce the Swaminarayan Prep School raised a total of £1020.86 for Readathon charities. The money is to be distributed towards a number of charities.
As a reward for the school, 20% of the donation - £204.17 - was received in the form of Scholastic book vouchers to be spent by the school.
I will be seeking the assistance of the Prep School Student Council in deciding how the money is to be spent on boosting stocks of popular books in the library.
Well done to all who participated in the Readathon this year!
