Keeping up with you... developing our collection

Of course, everyone is aware by now aware that our country’s current economic situation has impacted schools, and especially their libraries. This is even more so in the case of government assisted schools like ours.  

While our reading program is well known for its depth and variety of fun reads for our pre-teens and teens, budgetary constraints have meant that we have been unable maintain or develop our collection for the past 18 months and even though Mrs Pounder and Mrs Ramphal try, the fact is, our budget for new books has almost completely dried up...

We know that multiple studies show that extensive reading for pleasure not only increases anyone’s reading speed, understanding, vocabulary and facility for language acquisition, it improves all round academic achievement!
So please consider purchasing one or more books from our Amazon wish list that we may continue to provide our entire school community with the engaging and useful books for which we are known. When filling out the shipping information, we suggest choosing the option of shipping directly to the library.

Or, you may choose to purchase a book voucher for us at any RIK or Keith Khan book store. You may be able to claim a charitable deduction for books purchased and donated to the school. We encourage you to consult with your tax advisor regarding your gift-in-kind donation.

Thank you so much in advance!
