New Kindness Community Challenge – The Books That Made Me

On World Book Day 2022 our Student Senior Leadership Team are delighted to launch our lastest KAPP challenge – The Books That Made Me.

Read all about it…

Reading (be this factual or fiction) is vital as we know just how much it helps us all (and people of all ages) to expand our minds and widen our understanding of the world we live in.  We know too that reading keeps our minds active, healthy and sharp and has been proven to help prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s. 

For our next whole-school school challenge, we want to embrace our already established culture of reading even more widely within our community.  Our aim is to increase the access to our much loved favourite books from our childhoods (from Walliams to Wilson and  Dahl to Donaldson) to some of those children in our Worthing community who may not yet have had the opportunity to own and read such brilliant stories themselves.

So how are we going to do this?

It’s simple…. we want to collect as many second hand books as we can, to donate to other schools and to the community. Each form at Durrington will be challenged to build a book tower (of children’s books) “as tall as their tutor”.  This is the perfect way for us to celebrate World Book Day, the importance of reading and one of our core school values “kindness”. 

So if you have any good-condition, children’s books (aged 4-14) please please please bring them in so we can share them with others in need within our own community.

If things go to plan we hope to be able to collect (and most importantly donate) over 5000 good-as-new books to children in our community – what a way to celebrate our love of words!!

Donations must be brought in by Friday 11th March.
