Accelerated Reader Millionaires' Lunch

Accelerated Reader Millionaires' Lunch

On Tuesday 5th December a celebratory lunch was held in the library as a reward for 27 Year 7 and 8 students who had read over one million words as part of the Accelerated Reader Scheme during the academic year 2016/17.

These students, now in Years 8 and 9 all received a certificate and goodie bag and then spent an hour after the lunch with a Year 7 class, playing literacy games and talking to them about books and reading. To read over a million words in a year is a fantastic achievement and we would like to give them our congratulations.
