Pupils at John Bramston Primary School in Hainault will soon be queuing for a journey into the world of literature thanks to a kindhearted donation.

The current school library is shared with the dining hall and computer studio and is not a very practical space for pupils to relax in.

Now the school, in Newcastle Avenue, is hoping to convert a double decker bus, which was donated by Fowlers Transport, in to a space for many happy years of reading and inspiring young minds.

Headteacher Melanie Dye said: “The school is delighted to receive the generous donation of a long awaited double decker bus, to enhance learning experiences and opportunities for our pupils.

“Together with our Home School Association and parents, we shall be working this year to transform it, into a visually changing library and creative work spaces for the children.”

The school is appealing for support and help from the local community to help us renovate it.

Kate Ashton, chairwoman of the HSA, said the new library will be a wonderful resource for the school.

She said: “This is a huge project though and we are really hoping to get support and help from the local community to help us renovate it as we don’t currently have the funds to do it.

“If anyone is willing to help and give time, skills, donations, discounts for materials we will happily in return promote them and their businesses to the parents at the school and they will even get a mention on a plaque on the bus.”
