WELCOME TO OUR LIBRARY
Our new School Library was re-launched on Friday 6th May 2016.
The ambition of the refurbishment project which took place between October 2015 and May 2016 was to re-imagine the existing school library space in an economic but exciting way.
We wanted to adapt it with imagination and create a library that could act as a powerful magnet and become a real destination point for all members of the school.
We wanted to draw people together to discover, share and read new and classic books on all kinds of subjects, telling all sorts of stories and give everyone at school the chance to fall in love with words and with reading.
Now the project is complete - time will tell if our ambition comes good but we had great fun in making it happen and it seems like everyone so far has fallen in love with their new reading and learning space.
We need to say a big thank you to the Year 6 librarians who made this project happen with their vision and enthusiasm - Jack, Liberty, Teyla, Bella, Jonathan & Charlie.
We also need to say thank you to the family and friends of the school who helped raised money to buy new books - and of course the school’s parent fundraising group, Friends of Widecombe School, whose fundraising efforts enabled the project to happen. Lastly to all the staff and especially Mr Stokes, Head of School, who kick-started the idea from the very beginning and encouraged us all the way.
