The students and staff in the Carnegie shadowing group in school have spent the last couple of months reading and reviewing the 8 books shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Book Award 2016. On Monday we held a celebration in the LRC for students and staff in the group. We watched the live announcement of the winner, ran a fiercely contested quiz, prizes were handed out and thanks given to everyone for their commitment to being part of our shadowing group over the past few weeks. It was a great way to celebrate and the group were delighted that One by Sarah Crossan was the winning book. We are looking forward to Monday 27th June, it is our turn to host the Dacorum celebration of the Carnegie Book Award. We will be joined by 5 schools and the Eve Ainsworth author of Crush and 7 Days will be with us throughout the day running creative writing workshops and talking to the students about her books.
We are pleased to invite you to our Summer Concert which will take place on Friday 1st July 2016 at 7pm in the Desborough Hall. We are very excited to showcase a hugely varied programme with performances from students across all year groups. We will also take this opportunity to say goodbye and good luck to our Year 13 students. There will be a raffle and also drinks and snacks for sale before the concert and during the interval. We are trialling a new system this year and will be selling tickets online. Please click here to purchase tickets.
On the concert night, please can you bring a print out copy of your e-ticket receipt to show our staff on the door. There may be some tickets available on the door but it would be advisable to book in advance. Please do let us know if there are any problems.
