I had the pleasure of meeting with Mrs Mackinnon, head of St Benedict’s Junior Prep yesterday to deliver a copy of Polly’s Piralympics for their library.
As we entered the library I was greeted by a wonderful bunch of Bennies boys. The grade three’s were asked by Mrs Mackinnon, who wanted to read the new book first.
I was overwhelmed as every hand shot up. In fact one of the boys was even reading a previous book I had given to the school and was keen to show me The Magic Vuvuzela.
It is always so rewarding to visit St Benedict’s, the boys love to read and use the library every week, where they swap their books regularly. Their enthusiasm for reading and writing their own books is a credit to the encouragement they receive from a vibrant atmosphere of good solid learning and values, from passionate teachers.
I can’t wait to visit again, hopefully in the New Year when Polly’s Eskimo Piralympics will be completed and another of Polly’s adventures with the pirates will fly into their library.
