As part of Bromsgrove International School’s annual Book Week, we usually invite authors and illustrators from around the world to visit and speak to the students, however this year we decided to do something a little different. We focused on how reading can bring happiness, joy and positive changes to our lives and we wanted to be able to share our love of reading with the wider community. To put that into action, we worked alongside The Foundation for Slum Child Care to develop a meaningful day for the BIST students and the children at Ban Srinakarin. Students from BIST built bookshelves and donated books to create a mini library for Ban Srinakarin. They also read Thai and English books to the attentive children and joined in with some of the dances the children were learning! It was both a valuable and enjoyable day for all of us and we hope to continue our links with Ban Srinakarin in the future.
