The books have been given to the students at primary schools in Exmouth and the surrounding areas by Rotary Club of Exmouth and District.
Dictionaries have been handed out to primary school leavers thanks to the Rotary Club of Exmouth and District.
School leavers from 11 primary schools in Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and the surrounding area will receive a dictionary; some 300 books are expected to be given away this week.
A group of 29 year six leavers from The Beacon Church of England Primary School, Exmouth, recently received their dictionaries, together with a Bible, presented by Nigel Candelent, children’s youth and family worker at Holy Trinity Church, Exmouth.
Martyn Clegg, president of the Rotary Club of Exmouth and District, said: “This is an extremely important and worthwhile project and ensures so many children moving forward to their secondary education are equipped in this way.”
Mr Clegg said he was ‘very grateful’ to Rotarian Gerald Garraway, who has been involved with the dictionary project from the start and ensures it takes place each year.
