Westport, Newfoundland and Labrador 317 / 28 Books Given

Principal Jeff Quigley We are a very small school with a multi-grade format. Students who enrol are usually in the same classroom with the same books for at least three consecutive years. We currently do not have a proper library system where students can check out new books to read and the nearest Public Library is approximately 50 km away. Our School Development Plan is rich with reading components in an attempt to raise literacy levels but the task is difficult when students are disinterested in reading the same books over and over again. A fresh set of books would go a long way for us and hopefully help create a love for reading again.
