Principal Jamie Hunt At Beautiful Botwood Collegiate, we are currently moving towards a Library Learning Commons model. There is no current budget available to purchase new books or resources for our space. We have very little updated books for our students to enjoy and, in our intensive weeding process this year, we have lost 98% of our collection due to outdated or damaged books. It would be amazing to have an opportunity to receive updated 21st c subjects in the areas of science, technology, as well as more Young Adult Literature. We are a high profile, high needs school with one third of our entire school population with diagnosed exceptionalities. Twenty percent of these students have a specific learning disorder in reading and / or writing. These students would benefit from any graphic novels, or HI LO novels, purchased from the grant to stay motivated in reading. Our Library Learning Commons is quickly becoming a space where we foster the love of literacy through various book clubs, maker-spaces, and STE(A)M projects. Given the right books, our students can soar to new heights in their reading adventures. Please consider donating a book to our school. You can help our students become successful leaders of tomorrow with your generous donations.
