A substantial shipment of books, organised by the charity Books Abroad, is expected to arrive at the school in the near future. We believe it will include a variety of topics in fiction and non-fiction to cover a wide age range.
There has been an emphasis on the provision of more books for the Aquinoe Learning Centre for over a year. The charity received a wonderful donation, specifically to buy National Curriculum books and texts written in Kiswahili for the school as both of these were in short supply. The money has been sent and the books purchased.
The charity has received donations of books directly from publishers – Usborne, Frances Lincoln and Search Press – and other sources too. Some of these were delivered free of charge by DHL and some were transported by the trustees when they visited the school in May 2010.
