World Book Day 2018

In celebration of World Book Day 2018, UK Jobs and Recruitment group Hays has generously provided Mountford Manor Primary School with 30 classic Roald Dahl books.

Since the publication of James and the Giant Peach in 1961, the whimsical tales of Roald Dahl have been enjoyed by countless children and adults alike.

To date, Dahl’s books have been translated into more than 59 languages with more than 200 million copies sold worldwide! Thanks to this kind donation made by Hays, the children at Mountford Manor Primary School will be able to enjoy these memorable stories for many years to come.

“We are delighted to be receiving these books and would like to express our sincere thanks to Hays for their generosity,” said Rachel Skates, Principal of Mountford Manor Primary School. “World Book Day is always an exciting and inspiring day for all our children and receiving this donation will make it even more so.”

As part of Book Week, pupils marked World Book Day 2018 by dressing up as their favourite characters from literature. We were all impressed by the creativity and talent on display!

The pupils and staff at Mountford Manor Primary School extend their sincere gratitude to Hays for their contribution.
