Dictionaries for Life
The Rotary Club of Matlock has given 163 Usborne Illustrated Dictionaries to school leavers at seven local primary schools.
The schools - St Josephs, Darley Dale, Castle View, Matlock Bath Holy Trinity, All Saints, St Giles and Church Town - were given dictionaries for their outgoing year 6 pupils at school assemblies from July 6th to July 23rd, accompanies by Matlock Rotary Club representatives, who helped with the presentations.
Peter Kidd, the President of Matlock Rotary Club said “In this digital age it is still important to enjoy looking something up in a book. These pictorial dictionaries are full of great drawings showing how things work. It is great to be able to give the school leavers something that will benefit them in life and at secondary school”
Diane Blount, Senior Vice President of Matlock Rotary Club, who organised the dictionary presentations said “It is rewarding to be able to give the school leavers something useful that will remind them of their time at the primary schools.”
