Kids’ joy as Cobourg Primary School loft turned into brand new library

Kids at Cobourg Primary School in Burgess Park jumped for joy as their teachers gave them first dibs on books in their brand new library.

Teacher Dominic Walker and assistant head Ms Stringer handed ribbon cutting duties to the excited pupils, before special guests from Literacy Tree gave a presentation.

Dominic told the News: “This is the first library at Cobourg – before this was all just a big attic. Work started at the end of summer last year and we have had a lot of help with decorating from one of our teaching assistants.”

The passage up to the top floor of the school, with views over Burgess Park pond, is emblazoned with painting of fictional icons like Harry Potter and fantasy creatures.

Dominic added:?“It’s sensational. I’m excited for all the kids. Reading meant such a lot to my life when I was young. Now the kids will be able to get the same experiences of learning how to interact with their public libraries.”
