We are celebrating the anniversary of the library transforming into the LRC (Learning Resource Centre). 1998 saw the old library extending into two classrooms allowing for the installation of 40 PCs as well as a vast stock of fiction and non-fiction books.
Over the last 20 years it has become one of the main hubs of the school, used for quiet studies, computer work and internet research, alongside all the traditional features of a library. Break, lunchtimes and after school have become a regular place where students read, study and socialise. Various activities happened over the celebratory week; Jake Evans, a storyteller visited and spent time with year 8 students introducing them to dystopian stories. Ash Dickinson, poet, worked with some year 9 and 10 students, a book fair took place and a cake stall which raised nearly £120 for MNDA. Additionally, the LRC held a VIP celebration for all their Library Assistants and regular users of the facility.
Mrs Griffiths, LRC Manager said: “It was wonderful to welcome back the original LRC Manager, Mr Jackson, and have the opportunity to thank our helpers and some of the students who regularly use the resource. Alsager School is very lucky to have such a wonderful resource that is accessible to all students; it is a well-used resource and we are proud of the welcoming environment created”.
