For the love of reading - St Peter's Primary, Edinburgh
The school used the commission from its book fair and part of the school budget to purchase books for reluctant readers as well as class book sets. They aim to continue using commission money to replenish stocks in the future. With the help of PTA fundraising money and the IKEA Community Fund, a team of volunteers has helped to improve the environment in the library; these volunteers also helped to assess the reading requirements of the school community. Feedback was gathered from pupils, parents and staff. The team has also supported and extended pupils' use of city-wide libraries by organising class visits to Morningside Library where pupils could sign up for library cards.
