Feilding Intermediate School with their 'Give it a go' programme.

The set of 12 freshly 'cased in' journals are placed top and tail under a clean flat board covered with some heavy weights. The books are best left like this overnight before anyone opens the Journal. As the glue dries fully the strength of the construction increases and  after some hours under pressure the book will open right out and be very strong. ( I let the students take their Journals with them and they promise to put them under a stack of books overnight before 'opening' them in the morning.)
