Reading Week 2017
In March The whole school celebrated Reading Week and World Book Day, with a marvellous mix of events and competitions.
Assemblies had a reading theme, raffle tickets where given to anyone ‘caught reading’ and students were fantastically creative and wrote their own dynamic book openings. To reinforce our reading message, posters promoting famous stories appeared in the most unlikely of places.
As you can see, many members of staff joined in the fun on World Book Day and dressed as their favourite book character. The Library hosted A World Book Day party, where girls proved that books can take you anywhere in the world … and beyond and tried for prizes in the Which Book Are You In? and Title Twisters competitions.
Finally, at three periods throughout World Book Day, the whole school Dropped Everything and Read … a lovely way for everyone to relax and read and really get into their favourite stories.
Many congratulations to these Reading Week competition winners:

Re-home your books, donate to the school library
Spring is traditionally the time for redecorating and decluttering, so if your child finds that they have books they no longer need, do please consider donating them to the Library.
The Library always loves to receive Young Adult fiction that is in good condition: it is another great way of ensuring that students benefit from the widest possible choice in reading. Any titles we cannot use will be sent to charities.
So let us offer a new home for your books.
