Carnegie Shadowing Scheme 2017
CELEBRATING READING AT THE SACRED HEART
The Carnegie Medal is awarded by children's librarians for an outstanding book for children and young people. Thirty two Year 8 and 9 students and nine members of staff took part in the Carnegie Shadowing group. They read and reviewed eight books and awarded points for style of writing, characters and overall enjoyment. To celebrate this event a lunchtime ‘Winners’ Party was held where the winner of the Carnegie Medal ‘Salt to the Sea’ by Ruta Sepetys was announced. Our winner for the third time in a row matched the official winner! Both the girls and staff who took part were enthusiastic and committed to reading a book a week. Well to done all who participated.
