  • Ready Steady Read - October 2021

    Published 17/11/21, by Shelley Featon

    To celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, Compass Primary ran a sponsored read event between 4th and 10th October 2021. The project was organised in conjunction with our Usborne Organiser, Vikki MacDonald, and all the money raised has gone towards brand-new books for our school. 

    We raised £419.60 in total and with the 30% in free books on top, we had £548.48 to spend on fabulous books for our school. We can not thank everyone enough for their support, generosity and kindness as we continue on our reading journey.
