PRIMARY school pupils are being treated to a new library, due to open in the coming weeks.

Horwich Parish Primary is opening a brand new facility.

The newly installed library will be unveiled on June 10, with the opening attended by Bolton West MP Chris Green.

The Parent Teacher Association donated £5,000 towards the construction of the library after fundraising efforts.

The library comes at an exciting time for the school and the PTA, with plenty of plans in the pipeline and lots of new activities being tried out.

Head teacher Debbie Mills said: “The children will be talking about this forever.”

Just last week, the PTA hosted the school’s successful colour run.

 The run saw all 498 children at the school invited to throw colourful chalk while exercising to keep fit and healthy. 

The colour run marked the end of term and rounded off the school’s Health Weeks.

Pupil Oscar Lamplugh-Wood, aged 11, said: “It’s very good because it’s healthy, we’re doing something that’s active and good for the environment. 

"It’s good for the mind. It’s exercise in a fun way.

“I think other schools should do it once a year. It gets people out and about.

“It’s going to be a memorable moment, it’s going to be one of my most memorable moments from Year Six!”

The PTA, led by chair Louise Chow, is not stopping after contributing thousands of pounds to the school’s new library.

As the next event after the colour run, the group has organised a Summer fair to keep up the fundraising work.

Ms Chow said: “Last year’s was really successful!”

The Summer fair will take place on June 30, from 11.30am until 2.30pm.

It will feature a bouncy castle, tombola, games, as well as a talent show.

The talent show will include performances from parents and former students alike.

For its next big project, the school is raising money for IT equipment to help raise the profile of science in school.
