The National Book Council has just donated a substantial amount of books to St. Margaret’s College in a short ceremony held in the Cospicua Primary School library attended by the respective Heads of Schools, the College Principal Ms. Maria McNamara and the Hon. Chris Agius, Parliamentary Secretary for Research, Innovation, Youth and Sport. The donated books were expressly chosen to target the kindergarten classes of said college and will be used for reading sessions in the classroom as well as for individual use by kindergarten students.
This donation to St. Margaret’s College will be repeated in 2015 with a donation of titles ideal for Year One students within the same college, and so forth in consecutive years to come. The aim of this National Book Council initiative is to offer at least one particular generation within the college, the possibility to grow in an educational set-up which offers direct access to several quality books.
The National Book Council is of firm belief that schools and classrooms should be well equipped with the latest quality titles and is doing its utmost to direct as much funds towards reaching this aim. In fact, this donation is the third of its kind for 2014 and other similar donations are planned for the near future.
