The principal, Mr Damien Eannetta, and staff of St Mary’s Primary School, Pomeroy identified a need to improve the library facilities in the school. Their aim was to continue developing reading in the school and in particular to foster in the children a love of books.
The school had two vacant mobiles on the grounds and it was decided to use these mobiles to create a Literacy Centre. The Friends of St Mary’s, worked tirelessly with the school staff and local community to raise funds for the project. Events organised by parents and Friends of the school, for example a spinathon, coffee morning, the Sea to Summit challenge and a car wash, were very well supported by the community.
