Over the past week and as part of World Book Day, children of the Upper School at Hallfield have donated a large number of books to the school to sell to their peers for 50p per book.
With many children purchasing a number of books each they managed to raise £150 to give to the hospital.
In addition, and due to popular demand, Senior Teacher and Head of Modern Languages also revived her bilingual reading group during break times, where a number of eager youngsters read ‘Le Rocher Rouge’ (The Red Rock) in French.
Speaking of the book sale, Mrs Checketts, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to raise funds for the patients at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and what better way to do it than a book sale! The children here at Hallfield love to read so we knew it would be a success.”
