Pool Academy wins hundreds of pounds for new books

Pool Academy’s librarian has won hundreds of pounds to spend on new books for the school library.

Sandra Hampton says she was very excited to hear the academy had won £250 in a James Patterson competition for books. Scholastic also topped up the prize with an extra 25 percent. This means Pool Academy has been awarded £312.50.

Mrs Hampton is now calling on students to bring their requests for what they would like her to buy for the library.

She has until the end of the month to put her orders in.

Mrs Hampton said: “Before Easter I entered the school and library into a Scholastic competition. I have just had an email to confirm we are one of the winners.

“It is so exciting.

“I would love to hear from students which authors and book titles they would like to see in the library.  

“I am aiming to order the chosen books a few days before May 31st.”

Students can drop their requests in at the library when they visit next.
