Celebrating World Book Day

The homebuilder gifted £100 to the school to mark World Book Day, now in its 22nd year.

The initiative is a celebration of reading and aims to encourage children and young adults to come together to explore and enjoy literature. To mark the occasion, St. Joseph’s School held a parade in their school hall which was also attended by sales executives from Taylor Wimpey’s Meadowsweet Farm development.

Julia Wallace, headteacher at St. Joseph’s School, said: “Reading is such an important life skill and something that we encourage all of our pupils to do more of. Having new books to get stuck into helps to keep up an enthusiasm for reading and we would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for their kind donation. We can’t wait to add to our library and share new stories with each other.”

We’re proud to offer a donation to the schools in Leamington Spa to help them to celebrate World Book Day and hope that the new books will be enjoyed for years to come.”
