On Thursday the 23rd of October Aquinas Foundation and Simon Dawkins will be attending the Reigate school in Derby to help encourage new use into the school library.
The head teacher Mr Peter Hallsworth has been working with Aquinas Foundation for a number of years, over a variety of different programs and did not hesitate in approaching Aquinas for help encouraging the pupils to start to use the library more frequently.
Simon Dawkins is a regular for Derby County Football team after a transfer from Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club in the January transfer window and we at Aquinas are privileged to have him working with our charity to encourage learning amongst the youth of today. Simon Signed for Tottenham Hotspurs in 2005 and has since been on loan at various clubs including Aston Villa, Leyton Orient and Derby before he made his move permanent. Simon also represents Jamaica at an international level where he has so far gained 4 caps.
Simon will be reading with children on a one to one basis within the library to encourage its use. Simon will then commence with a question and answer period on the library project and his involvement with the Aquinas foundation. All the children will be encouraged to join in and place Simon in the hot chair so that they can see a positive outcome to using the library.
