The Scholastic Book Fair came to Borden last week and was enthusiastically welcomed by the students. Lots of books were sold, with all profits going towards buying new books for the school library. Mrs Brown, School Librarian, who organised the event said “It’s a delight to see the student’s enthusiasm looking at the books”.
