In November, the Usborne Book Fair once again visited the primary school. The fair gives pupils and parents the opportunity to buy a range of books in English. As ever, the fair was a hive of activity and excitement as children looked to see what new books had been published since the fair's previous visit.
The school receives a portion of the fair's profits. November's fair was a record, with the school earning 500CHF towards new books. The English department has been able to buy a complete reading programme, designed specifically for English language learners. Each book is accompanied by an audio CD, helping the reader to hear correct pronunciation. The programme will be available for all children to borrow in the new year.
Usborne will return during the third trimester.
