Rockwell Green Primary School receives donation for World Book Day
- 03 Mar 21
In celebration of World Book Day on 4th March, pupils at Rockwell Green Primary School in Wellington now have more books to choose from, thanks to a leading housebuilder. Bovis Homes has donated £400 towards new books to promote reading for pleasure, the main drive for World Book Day, which is marked annually in over 100 countries of the world. Headteacher at Rockwell Primary School, Mike Berrisford said: “We are thankful to Bovis Homes for their generous donation as it has enabled us to purchase more high-quality books for our children to enjoy. Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and is fundamental to the children being able to grow as learners.” Emma Smith, sales and marketing director, commented: “We’re delighted to support Rockwell Green Primary School with a donation to mark World Book Day. During the last 12 months, children have had a challenging time – with many changes to their usual routine – but reading is somewhere they can still explore new worlds and meet new characters, so we’re pleased to be able to help in this small way. We hope the children will enjoy spending World Book Day reading some new books.” Rockwell Green Primary School is close to Bovis Homes’ Monument View development on the edge of Wellington, which has just launched. Work started on site in autumn and the development of 205 properties will feature a range of three, four and five bedroom homes, along with areas of green open space and an equipped play area. The company supports many community initiatives near to its developments.
