North Walsham school celebrates World Book Day

Pupils at a North Norfolk school have celebrated World Book Day in style with the opening of their new-look library and ICT suite.

Staff and children at Millfield Primary School in North Walsham marked World Book Day, which took place on Thursday, March 3, by officially opening their new ICT suite and re-opening their library which has moved to a mobile classroom, on Friday .

Head Jan Harazdiuk, said the money for the new ICT suite and library had been raised with donations from people including the Friends of Millfield School. Barclays Bank had also offered help in terms of man power to carry out the work and had donated furniture.

She said as a result of the help they had been given also been able to purchase 15 new lap-tops for the children from the school budget.

She added: 'We thought World Book Day would be a great way to celebrate the re-opening of the library and the new ICT Suite. We have been taking part in a range of activities, connected to books and parents have also been invited to come in and take part in reading activities with their children.'
