Wonderful book week

Today saw the start of an exciting selection of Book Week activities.  In Primary all the staff and students turned up as Roald Dahl characters, so the school was full of Big Friendly Giants, Oompa Lumpas and Giant Peaches.

Secondary started with an assembly where poet and former student Wael Al Sayegh talked about what reading meant to him, and why it is so important to read.  He said that in his travels around the world he had 'never met an important or influential person who did not enjoy reading.'

The week is going to continue with visiting authors, competitions, 'drop everything and read' lessons, plus a host of other exciting reading activities.
