Dons support World Book Day

2 March 2017

Ahead of World Book Day (today), first-year scholar Finn Tapp visited his old school - Deanshanger Primary.

Finn read to groups of six children, as well as assisting each child when it was their turn to read from each of the year groups - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

What’s more, he addressed the whole school to talk about the benefits of reading, which he said includes helping your imagination - a great benefit when you’re trying to be creative on the football field! 

The 17-year-old also discussed the importance of education, while he revealed that his favourite author was Michael Morpurgo and his favourite book was the Cat in the Hat.

Before heading back to Stadium MK, Finn posed for pictures with pupils and his old teachers.

Deanshanger Primary School deputy headteacher Sarah Webb said: "Finn was brilliant and he really inspired our children - he gave a very grounded but focused message about how important it is to read and remain focused on your dreams.

"He gave some powerful, motivational messages and was very impressive. I cannot thank the Club or Finn enough - it was an excellent afternoon."
