PUPILS at a Port school launched an exciting new chapter in their learning thanks to a local supermarket.

Craigmarloch kids celebrated World Book Day with a host of new stories after the Morrisons store in Greenock's charity champion Carol Mountain presented them with a hamper of new books for the library.

The books were gifted thanks to a partnership between the Morrisons Foundation and the National Literacy Trust.

Carol said: “I’m delighted to be donating these new books to a local school.

“It is great to get the children reading for fun when they are in school.

"It gets them away from their electronic devices and hopefully it is something they will continue to do throughout their lives.

“The pupils were all so excited to see what was there.

"There’s a great selection and I hope that every pupil will be able to find a story they will enjoy.”

Depute head teacher Aileen Morgan was delighted to take delivery of all the new titles.

She said: “We have been busy for World Book Day - the theme for this year is drop everything and read so we had announcements throughout the day where everything stopped and the pupils picked up a book.

“Each class has also worked hard to decorate the classroom door in a book theme.

"All the entries are very impressive and everyone has put in a lot of work.

“It is wonderful that Morrisons chose to donate the books to us, the children are loving it and are excited to see what books they have received.

“This donation will help showcase the excitement of reading books.

"We thanks Carol and Morrisons for their support, it has created a real buzz around the school.”
