Today has been World Book Day, and as well as donating unwanted books to Oxfam, staff and students have been sharing photos of their bookshelves on Twitter. Have you shared your #shelfie with @mardenenglish?
There is still space and time to get your unwanted books down to the table in the LRC for Oxfam’s Message in a Book Appeal…
Key Stage 3 students enjoyed an entertaining talk this morning from Dr. John Kilcoyne of Sunderland University, in which he demonstrated a variety of fun Science experiments.
Last Friday a workshop was delivered by a tutor from Dance City. This involved students in Yr7 with a particular interest in dance.
Thursday 6th March is World Book Day, and as part of OXFAM’s Message in a Book Appeal we are asking all students to bring an unwanted book to school next week to donate.
There are approximately 840 staff and students in the school so if everyone brings at least one fiction or non-fiction book in good condition, we could donate at least 840 books to Oxfam. There will be a table in the LRC for you to bring your book(s) to starting from today. So let’s see if we can achieve this target by World Book Day on the 6th of March.
