Primary school children get library induction at Cromwell Community College, Chatteris

PRIMARY school children have been attending Cromwell Community College in Chatteris this week for an induction to the library and resource centre.

More than 200 children, from schools across Cambridgeshire, took part in the induction before they join Cromwell in September.

Jackie Harding, resource centre manager, said: “We have had children coming across from schools in Chatteris, Manea, Wimblington, Somersham and March and we even had one from Cambridge!

“We have had the children in for the last seven days. They learned how to use the library, the computers and other resources.

“They also had lunch here in the caf�, which was a new experience for them as it was the first time they had brought money into school to purchase their food.
