STUDENTS from North Bromsgrove High School helped younger children with the Summer Reading Challenge over the holidays.

The group headed to Bromsgrove Library to assist with the scheme aimed at encouraging youngsters to to pick up a book, leading to a love of reading.

The link-up provided an opportunity to invite young people, aged 12 to 22, to volunteer in the libraries and welcome all the children visiting there.

This year Bromsgrove had more than 350 children sign up.

Issy Miller, Bromsgrove Library’s customer advisor, said without their volunteers they ‘couldn’t have done it’.

Among the North Bromsgrove pupils were Ava in year nine, who achieved 12 hours of volunteering, Lucie Proudman from year 10 who notched up a whopping 22 hours of volunteering, Molly also from year 10 who gave 10 hours of volunteering and Jadeen who achieved four hours of volunteering plus the continuation of hours for the Duke of Edinburgh (DOE) scheme.




North Bromsgrove headteacher Nick Gibson said: “Reading is vitally important to us as a school and we are delighted to forge strong links with the local library.”
