We have been successful in bidding for £65,000 of funding to create a new school library. St John’s has never had a school library before and we are all very excited. We achieved this through the amazing work of our charity, The Candlelight Trust. Our new challenge is to fundraise a further £15,000 in order to fully stock our new library with beautiful new books. All parents, carers and friends are encouraged to get involved.
The Fundraising Campaign for library books will be launched on Thursday 26th April and we are hoping for some press coverage. We really want to reach out to past pupils and families as we think that many would want to contribute. A £10 donation will buy a book (with cover and tagged with a bar code for our new system) and we will put a bookplate in that book which recognises the donor. Donate £20 and you will be recognised on bookplates in two books and you will get an invite to the Launch Party in July. If you donate £30 you will also receive a free copy of the school poetry book. For £50 you will also get acknowledgement on our school website and mentioned in the poetry book. A £500 donation will fund a whole shelf of books to which a brass plate dedication will be attached to acknowledge your special contribution (in addition to all the other incentives mentioned above).
