The words on the street for St Albans primary school leavers
PUBLISHED: 19:00 15 August 2010
YEAR Six leavers have been presented with a souvenir to commemorate their time at primary school.
St Albans Rotary Club donated 160 copies of the Usborne Illustrated Dictionary to pupils leaving Aboyne Lodge, Camp, Cunningham Hill, Margaret Wix and Windermere Schools.
It was part of a worldwide Rotary literacy campaign and the dictionaries were presented by Roger Talbot, president of the Rotary Club of St Albans.
He said: ‘The dictionaries will serve them well throughout their education and into their adult lives.”
Presentations were also made to the winners of the Rotary “Kids-Out” picture competition at Aboyne Lodge at the end of term.
Kids-Out is an annual event organised by local Rotary Clubs that takes children for a day out to Whipsnade Zoo. Many are disadvantaged and their life often revolves around what happens within just a mile or two of home.
