The Scholastic Book Fair on Thursday encouraged girls from Years 7, 8 and 9 to buy books to read. The school earned over £550 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. 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.
