Time to get reading!

Celebrating 26 years, World Book Day aims to encourage children of all ages to enjoy and appreciate the pleasures of all types of books.

Mrs McKellar, Head Teacher at Struthers Primary, said: “World Book Day is a fantastic initiative which focuses on encouraging children to develop their enjoyment of reading as well as their appreciation of books. Thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s donation, we can add lots of different styles of new books to our school library, and this means every child can enjoy them in their own way.”

Mrs Stefani, Head Teacher at Muirhead Primary adds: “We’re delighted to receive this donation from Taylor Wimpey. It will allow us to extend the choice of great books that we provide in our school library, where we know our children enjoy discovering new stories to read and enjoy.”

The World Book Day donation to Struthers Primary and Muirhead Primary is one of many ways in which Taylor Wimpey is supporting the local communities in which it builds.
