New en­chanted li­brary un­veiled

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Pri­mary school chil­dren are now able to en­joy read­ing in a new in­spir­ing li­brary mod­elled af­ter an en­chanted for­est.

Par­ents were in­vited to the grand un­veil­ing at Se­nacre Wood School in Graveney Road, Maidstone on Fri­day, Septem­ber 28 where the guests could ad­mire the newly dec­o­rated room - like a vi­sion from Shake­speare’s A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream.

Cllr Gary Cooke also came along and do­nated £200 to the school to buy books.

The event was or­gan­ised to co­in­cide with the school’s Macmil­lan Cof­fee af­ter­noon where vis­i­tors en­joyed tea and cake to raise funds for the can­cer char­ity.

Deputy head and English lead Maria Comer­ford, who took a lead­ing role in cre­at­ing the new li­brary, says chil­dren are now read­ing more thanks to the ren­o­va­tion

“It was re­ally lovely the com­mu­nity came to­gether and the do­na­tion was pledged. The kids are re­ally en­thu­si­as­tic about read­ing,” she said.
