Teachers from the school chose the books from The Thoughtful Spot bookshop, in Skircoat Green, who generously supported the project.

Rotarian Andrew Bateman said that reading is so important for young people. "Having a wide range of exciting new books should help the students to cope with any disruption caused by the fire," he added.
