Students delight at new books

Pool Academy students were delighted to see an array of new books on offer in the current Scholastics book fair.

Scores of paperbacks were on offer at half price in the school library including a number of well-known titles.


Students visited the shelves during their break and lunch times to see if they could grab a few bargains. There were also posters and stationery available too.

A group of students helped out selling the items to their peers.

One said: “It is exciting to have new books to buy at school in the half-price sale.”

Another student, Anna, agreed. She said: “It was good to see there were lots of new books in the sale.”

Megan added: “It is fun to have the book sale here. The books are also cheaper here too.”

School librarian, Sandra Hampton, said: “There are some really good books this time. We have been sent some for 13 year olds and up. This means they are suitable for more of the students in the school to read.

“We have had quite a few people come to look at the books already.”

The three cases full of fiction and non-fiction will be available to purchase until Thursday, 9th May.

Posters with information have been put up around the school. Pool Academy will be gifted 10 percent of the sales to spend on new books for the library.

Mrs Hampton is encouraging everyone to come and see the range of books on offer.
