As part of Rotary’s Basic Education and Literacy initiative to help improve literacy skills in schools Diss Waveney Rotary Club will be presenting Year Five pupils in 10 local primary schools with Usborne Illustrated English Dictionaries. These are issued in the names of each Year Five pupil for their personal use at home and at school. The Dictionaries4Life are distributed by members of Diss Waveney Rotary Club early in the new September term. 

In September 2020 the number of pupils in the 10 primary schools involved rise significantly. Predicted numbers indicate that 285+ Dictionaries4Life will be required and Diss Waveney Rotary Club will increase their fundraising efforts to purchase them.

The Dictionaries are always well received by both pupils and teachers in the schools we visit. This is an important ongoing Rotary initiative to help improve literacy standards and as such Diss Waveney Rotary club members are proud to continue to play their part in supporting it.
