Youngsters are now able to read a book in their new library which has been created as part of Ten Mile Bank Primary School’s centenary celebrations.

The school is marking its 100th anniversary this year with a host of exciting events and projects.

One of the major projects to celebrate this milestone has been the creation of a library for the school and now the staff and children are hoping to raise £1,000 to stock it with new books and furniture.

Teacher Maria Higgins said: “We didn’t have a space for a library here before. We wanted to create somewhere nice and quiet for children to go and read a book.

“Children are able to go to read individually or it can be used by a whole class.

“This is something the school council have wanted for a very long time.

The school will also be holding a centenary fun day on Saturday, July 5, to mark the big anniversary.

The school has also been working alongside the parish council to improve the playing field.

Youngsters have helped to raise about £3,000 to buy new play equipment for the field, which is shared between the school and the village.

Mrs Higgins said: “This is a very exciting project for the school to be involved in.”
