To help with their personal development, youngsters at Christ Church CofE Primary School, Stonegravels, Chesterfield, have received a personal copy of an Usborne Illustrated English Dictionary, courtesy the Rotary Club of Chesterfield.
Chesterfield Rotary President Ian Gaunt visited the school to present personal copies of the dictionary to the leaving pupils in Year 6 at the school’s weekly Family Assembly on Friday 3 July 2015.
President Ian Gaunt said: “The Dictionary 4 Life project aims to help children develop their knowledge and use of the English language and is a national project in support of Rotary International’s emphasis on Literacy.”
He added: “We believe the dictionaries will stimulate an interest in language, books and reading.”
Christ Church head teacher Mrs Sue Beckett said: “We wish to thank Rotary for this generous and most useful gift for our children.”
