What talented staff I see before me…!

Whilst the world thought to replace libraries with banks of iPads, we chose to design and build the most amazing library and I am delighted that we made that commitment.  However, building buildings is not enough…they need heart and soul, they need someone with a flint to create the spark.  Someone else needs to bring a little lint and some kindling whilst another gently fans the flames…

…who are these fire starters?  Well, they are the Orley Farm staff team.  We started book week with some wonderful moments from literary classics, acted out by the English department.  We then had storytellers reading out excerpts from their favourite books…the library has been full ever since, staff and pupils indulging in a little time out with a book…

Books light up our lives and storytellers show us how to laugh, cry, love and feel…I count myself very blessed to have staff who can make this happen…
