  • Wirral Book of the Year 2018 Author Event

On Tuesday 13 March the Wirral Book of the Year 2018 Reading Group from Years 9 & 10 attended the annual Author Event with Mrs Seed and Mrs Biggs. This year it was held at Bebington High School and organised by the librarian Kate Williams. Five of the participating authors:

 

Sarah Alexander –  The art of not breathing      

 

Alice Broadway – Ink  

 

Simon Green – Noah can’t even  

 

Will Hill –  After the fire   

 

Non Pratt – Truth or Dare  

 

 

The Authors talked about their work and answered questions, then signed copies of their books.

It was a very lively and enjoyable day.

  • Thursday 1 March 2018 - World Book Day

This year for World Book Day we had a ‘Pets Reading’ competition to celebrate literacy across the school. We asked staff and pupils to email or give in photos of their pets reading, which we displayed in the Library and they could then vote for their favourite.

The winners were:

1st -  Amy Baird 7C with Chico

2nd – Amelia and Annabel Boylan (8C and 10S)

Joint 3rd – Olena Feerick 8J and Miss Zhdanova with Archie

It was a very popular and inventive competition!
