08/09/2017 LORETO COLLEGE DONATES BOOKS TO ZOMBA ACTION PROJECT

The Loreto College English Department has made a gift of books for schools in Zomba, Southern Malawi. Approximately 600 books were donated to be distributed to secondary schools in Zomba.  Head of English Mrs Caragh Little and English Department member Mrs Frances Pepin suggested to the College that it was much more constructive to donate the books to schools which would welcome them, rather than having the books recycled as new specifications brought new textbooks to Loreto.

Mrs Little commented, ‘With the arrival of a whole set of new GCSE textbooks as the Autumn Term begins, it is positive to see our older books being appreciated and being put to good use.’

Roisin McCaughan, representing the Zomba Action Project, said 'Many pupils in rural secondary schools have to share books, they are in such short supply. This gift will greatly improve the opportunity to learn for those pupils lucky enough to receive a former Loreto College book.'
