Pupils at Bootham Junior School all got into character to mark the official opening of their new school library. Head, Dr Sue Pattison, explained, “Everyone has come as a character from their favourite book. We’ve got a good number of Harry Potters, the cast of Cinderella, complete with three ‘Ugly Sisters’; a Professor Underpants; a Tintin from Belgium; as well as a number of characters from Japanese literature. All in all, it is a wonderful day of celebration to mark the opening or our new library and the joy of reading.”
The Library is the latest in a programme of developments taking place at the Junior School in Rawcliffe and at the Senior School at Bootham, where building work is planned to start this summer, on a multi-million pound arts and music centre.
