B Cador: September 2016
Yesterday, we were visited by a lady called Sue, who has supported a child in school for a number of years. She came to say 'Thank you' on behalf of herself and Helen and Penny who had also been part of the team for fitting in the meetings into our busy schedules and providing the meeting space and refreshments in school.
In a beautiful card, given to us, these words were written:
'A mark of our appreciation for Wrenbury's welcome and generosity of spirit — a contribution to the library! With grateful thanks from Helen, Sue and Penny.'
Many of the meetings we have had together have taken place in our library. Sue, Helen and Penny know how important reading is and our desire, in school, to offer our children literature of the highest quality to engage our young readers. Their very generous, personal donation will go along way to being able to do this and we, as a school, are very appreciative of their kindness.
'A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.' Gaiman
'It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it' Oscar Wilde.
They also allude to something very special about Wrenbury: 'our welcome and generosity of spirit'. We're a happy, thoughtful, caring and friendly school, where our staff do go the extra mile for our children and their families and are wonderful role models to our children.
Thank you Sue, Helen and Penny for helping us provide more lovely reads that our children will enjoy reading for pleasure.
