We recently celebrated the opening of the brand-new library at Ntseveni Primary School and the Pride 'n Purpose team have been busy helping to fill the shelves with lots of children’s books.
Since the school opened in 2010, it has grown in size and now has four classrooms which means it welcome children from Reception, right up to Grade 7. The extra space is essential as over the years the school has received a fantastic reputation in the area, meaning that many parents choose to send their children there.
The new library has just been furnished and is filled with hundreds of books that have age-appropriate stories for children between 4 to12 years old.
All the funds for the building, its furnishings and the books have been donated by two wonderful families who are regular Ulusaba guests. After going on a Dumphries Community tour during their stay, and hearing more about the project, they decided to provide the necessary funds to support the schools expansion plans.
Literacy is at the forefront of the work that Pride ‘n Purpose does, and the new library gives the children the enjoyment of picking out a story and settling down to read it in a lovely environment.
As you can see the shelves still have plenty of space, so please get in touch if you’d like to help us fill them!
