A Harpenden school has decided to donate its maths textbooks to African pupils.
After the Cecil Grant Founder’s Trust organised new books for St George’s School, teacher Leah McCarthy decided to donate the old books to School Aid.
School Aid provides schoolbooks and other educational resources to schools in Africa.
They work with non-governmental organisations to ensure the books help pupils’ learning.
With some help from Year 9, a minibus was filled with books and sent on to Tanzania, South Africa, Lesotho and Malawi.

Ms McCarthy said: “The pupils worked like Trojans, packing the stacks of books into boxes donated by Ray Peacock from The Small Removal Company of Harpenden.
“I really couldn’t have done it without them, and I’m delighted the books have gone to such a good cause.”
