Each year here at St Mary’s, the Year 7 and Year 8 girls are given the opportunity to choose a free book from a selection offered by Bookbuzz, a reading programme for ages 11-13 run by Book Trust, with the aim of promoting reading for pleasure in schools. As part of the Bookbuzz programme, there is a competition for the pupils to re-design the cover of their chosen Bookbuzz book.
The girls very much enjoyed both choosing and receiving their free book, and they also created some fantastic designs this year for the competition. I am delighted to announce that Dora (Year 7) has won the competition with her book cover (pictured)! She will be receiving 'a box of books for herself and an even bigger one for the school library'!! Many congratulations Dora.
