Annanhill Primary School Celebrates World Book Day with New Library Opening

In an enchanting celebration for World Book Day, Annanhill Primary School was brought to life with characters from beloved tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Grandma, and the Big Bad Wolf taking on a unique role in the school's office. This special day also marked the much-anticipated opening of the school's new library, with Provost Jim Todd leading the ceremonial ribbon-cutting.

The event saw the participation of notable local figures including Alan Brown MP, Councillor Lillian Jones, Ian McMeekin from Scottish Fire and Rescue, a representative from Centrestage, and Captain Conker from Kilmarnock Football Club.

These guests took the opportunity to read stories to the children, making the day even more memorable.

Provost Todd shared his thoughts on the occasion, emphasising the profound impact of reading on the young minds. He said:

"What an honour to be invited to officially open Annanhill Primary School’s new school library, which has been improved thanks to support from parent helper, Katherine Duff. It was also a real pleasure to read to Miss Mason’s P2 class, they were a great bunch and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them. Reading is such a gift and I am so grateful for the opportunity to encourage our children and young people to read. Books can transport you to different places and different times and can be life-changing."

The addition of the new library, spearheaded with support from parent helper Katherine Duff, represents a significant step towards enriching the educational resources available to the students. The school community is excited about the endless possibilities that this new space will offer for learning, exploration, and the discovery of new worlds through reading.
