The president of Weston-super-Mare Rotary Club has gone back to school to teach children the importance of the English language.

Marian Barber, the club’s president, visited Christ Church, Oldmixon, and Walliscote primary schools in Weston to donate dictionaries to their students.

The visit was part of the rotary club’s Dictionaries For Life Project, which it runs in conjunction with Usborne Publishing Ltd.

Marian explained to children how a good command of the English language is an essential facet of life today.

She said she hopes pupils will enjoy using the colourful dictionaries for years to come, as they progress through primary school and into secondary school.
