Book Week 2022
Monday 7th March - Thursday 10th March 2022
Book week was held during the week of 7 – 10th March. On Monday, Giles Abbott a regular storyteller at the school delighted Year 7 with scary myths and legends from around the world. On Tuesday, Kimba a rapper and poet entertained and involved Year 8 students with his poetry and a brilliant workshop. Year 9 had the opportunity to hear Award-winning poet Karl Nova talk about his journey to become a poet, reading some of them aloud. He was very well received by all the students. Lots of the students took the opportunity to buy Karl's new book and have it dedicated and signed by him.
The Scholastic Book Fair on Thursday encouraged girls from Years 7, 8 and 9 to buy books to read. The school earned £400 in commission through book sales. This money will be spent on books for the students to enjoy in the Study Centre. The week was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all. I must say a big thank you to all the girls who took part for their exemplary behaviour. All the visitors remarked on this and the enthusiasm of the girls.
