Today we celebrated the end of the second year of the BookShare Project funded by Smurfit Kappa Foundation. Following the success of last years project the Foundation decided to very generously increase their sponsorship to include funding for topic boxes of books for pupils in year 7 at Heartlands E-ACT Academy and to provide a wide range of books for the newly refurbished library at the Nechells E-ACT Academy. Their continued support of this amazing project has meant that again over the last 11 months every child in year one in participating schools has received a book every month to read and take home and share with their family and to start their very own library of beautiful books to help develop a love of reading that will hopefully last them a lifetime.
