Pupils at Abbey Park Primary Academy School have celebrated the opening reading room with a collection of new books bought by generous donations.

The ‘Avatar Room’ is dedicated to the pupils at the academy and teachers are aiming to foster a love of reading among students.

Older pupils will act as librarians in the new part of the library and there will be a buddy system with older children reading to the younger ones.

The funding for the library was gathered through generous donations from the families of school children who took part in the sponsored cycle ride.
