Book Fair in Lower School Library

On Monday 26 February I took delivery of three large book cases and a small stationery shop from Travelling Books. Lower School girls were invited to pop along for a browse and purchase, if they wished.

We set ourselves a goal of £500 for the week and crossed our fingers for luck!

YAY! By close of business on Tuesday we had smashed our goal and taken a whopping £560.41 which was a fantastic result. The bad snow did not hold us back... Travelling Books kindly agreed to extend our book fair into this week to make up for school being closed. We went on to finish with a total sales figure of £1,035.35. 

I would just like to say a HUGE thank you to parents, guardians and girls for supporting me in this fun event. All proceeds from this sale will result in our school being rewarded with a gift of selected free books for our library.
