A MARCH primary school is holding its first library open day later this month to raise funds to buy new computers to help with the pupils testing.

Burrowmoor Primary School’s library will be open to members of the general public on March 28 from 2.30 to 4pm.

They will be selling books, cakes and bookmarks made by the pupils.

Audrey Morton, the school’s librarian, says they are hoping to raise £3,000 on the day, which will be spent on new equipment.

She said: “We need to purchase some equipment to help children with their testing on their books.

“The pupils read books and take quizs to see how they are doing. The problem is we only have five Neo computers at the moment. They cost £175 each so we need to raise as much as possible.”

The school is looking for sponsors for the Neo computers. If you are interested email
