World Book Day

A successful week of events took place in the first week of March. Casual clothes day raised £693.24 for Book Aid International — thank you to all of you who kindly supported this event.

World Book Tokens were handed to students under the age of 18 and special edition books were available from the Library. Also available from the Library were entry forms for the National World Book Token competition.

Mrs Onions dressed as The Tiger Who Came To Tea as a tribute to author Judith Kerr who died last year, with her Sixth Form students choosing to dress up too.

Friday, 6 March concluded with the Blue Peter Book Award celebration lunch and voting. Thirty-seven Year 7 and two Year 8 students attended during the lunch break to watch Blue Peter, vote and eat cake made by Sophie, Mrs Onions, Daisy & Robyn. Sixth Form students Anna, Anna-Maria, Jasmine and Sophie were joined by Safia from Year 10 who helped run the session counted votes etc.

  • Rise Up: Ordinary Kids with Extraordinary Stories by Amanda Li and Amy Blackwell
  • Fanatical About Frogs by Owen Davey

The Best Story was:

  • Vote for Effie by Laura Wood
