Pledge a Book

Please use the link if you are interested in giving a new, or nearly new book, to a Primary aged child who wouldn’t usually have many/any books to read at home. This charity is very close to our hearts at John Hanson as we strive to make better writers and readers out of our students. This year has been a Literacy success, culminating in next weeks Big Write!
