Alperton donates another set of books to Sierra Leone

Another load of maths textbooks and excercise books were dropped off to depot in Marlow. These books will be shipped to Sierra Leone and will make a small difference in the education mission of Build on Books.

Our school have supported this amazing charity for the past 3 years and have donated over 1000 books, as well as our own old football and rugby kit. We have also raised money for goats to be bought for several families in deprived villages.

We now hope to raise £130 that will help train a teacher. Each rural school must have 7 qualified teachers before they can receive government funding. Therefore get your thinking caps on for a big staff quiz in September!!!

Many thanks to Ms Edwards for all her hard work in organising this!
