On Tuesday 24th May, representatives from Burgess Hill Rotary Club presented children’s dictionaries for life to Southway Junior School (see picture, this page).

In attendance on behalf of the Rotary Club to make the donation were Rotary President Jenny Theobald and associate John Jefferson.

The donation was gratefully received by the school by Mr Pete Newbold, Headteacher, Miss Laura Whitman, Year 6 Teacher and Literacy lead and some of their Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.

The pupils commented: “The diagrams and pictures really help you to understand about how things work, and the explanations are easy to follow.”

Burgess Hill Rotary Club hold many fund raising events throughout the year within the local community which enabled their Community & Vocational team to donate these wonderful dictionaries to the school of which the pupils at Southway are incredibly grateful.
