As part of its "150 good actions" this year, a primary school gave more than 40 books to the children's ward at Northampton General Hospital.
The faculty at Wootton Primary School is urging students to perform 150 nice actions throughout the year to commemorate the school's 150th anniversary.
The school's most recent charitable act was generating more than £1,000 from a Scholastic book fair last month and donating children's books to a charity in Africa and the Disney Ward at Northampton General Hospital (NGH) using half of the commission they got ($700).
Jo Smith, a year three teacher at Wootton Primary School, directed the book donation initiative.
"We have challenged the entire school community to do 150 nice deeds this year because we are 150 years old," she stated. We have now reached 75, which means we are halfway there. Every year group has committed to performing two good deeds each term. All of it is consistent with our principles of cooperation, mutual respect, and fortitude.
On February 9, Jo and the school house captains Maya, Anabia, Aariya, and Casey handed the storybooks to NGH.
Due to Covid-19 regulations, they were unable to enter the hospital, but they were met by Sue Faulkner, the play expert lead on the Disney Ward, and her colleagues, who happily accepted their donations.
The novels are great, according to Sue. While they are in the hospital, the patients will appreciate reading these.
While the kids and teens wait for their procedures and therapies, they will help keep them occupied.
Other good deeds performed by students at Wootton Primary School include making Christmas cards and singing carols for senior citizens in a care facility, participating in a Santa Fun Run, picking up litter, planting trees, putting together breakfast baskets for low-income families, giving old coats to underprivileged children, and placing poppies on the graves of soldiers who served in both world wars.
One student participated in a sponsored "swimathon" and raised £469 for Cancer Research UK.
The youngsters are becoming the best they can be by working as a community to achieve these 150 actions by the end of the academic year, said Jo, who added: "It has been a big undertaking but we are working together as a team."
