Co-operative Schools join the Book Campaign

One of the schools in KwaZulu Natal.

discover this info here Three Co-operative schools  are teaming up to send 50,000 books to their linked schools in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The three schools, Aire Valley School (near Bradford) Campstown Technology College (near Doncaster) and South Axholme School (Epworth) are going to encourage the public to donate books for the campaign. The three schools in South Africa Makhasa High School, Kwa Giba High School and Malabela High School, all in KwaZulu Natal, will use the books to set up school libraries. Isobel McVicar, Community H.E.A.R.T. Director said, ” This is a wonderful way of students cementing their links. Though school buildings have vastly improved since the end apartheid, many schools have no school library and students have little or no access to books. A school library is a practical tangible way of changing the outcomes for young people in South Africa.
