Library- Festive Fun

Towards the end of the Michaelmas term, the library held a very festive book and gift sale - including the ever-popular lucky dip, handmade crafts and a secret book Santa. The sale managed to raise £35 for the charity https://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/.

The annual tradition of decorating the Christmas tree with book recommendations, shared both by pupils, students and staff, went down a real treat - it’s always a proud moment to see such a variety of books having been enjoyed.

The end of Michaelmas term also saw our Year 8 Pupil Librarians receive their Bronze award - pupils worked extremely hard during this term, covering a wealth of skills.

During the run up to Christmas, Paige Feast from 7ZMS was nominated to receive a Christmas book written by popular author Tom Palmer. Paige was nominated for her kindness and helpfulness in the school library. Thanks also go to Tom too for his generosity.

We also awarded five very keen pupils in Year 7 who took part in the annual Readathon - raising £115 for the charity http://readforgood.org/. Congratulations to:

  • Paige Feast 7ZMS
