Since this photograph was taken, even more entries to the Blurbie competition have been added to the display. By the end of Book Week itself, there were just under 300! Because of the phenomenal response we have decided to extend the voting process for another week. Everyone who borrows a book from the School library this week will be given the opportunity to vote for up to 5 of their favourite Blurbies. The voting slips will be entered into a prize draw.
The winners of both the Blurbie competition and the prize draw will be announced on Monday 30th September as will the winner(s) of the writing competition.
I would like to thank the following people: all the staff and S6 pupils who wore their Book Badges throughout Book Week; the Tutors who encouraged their Tutor Groups to get involved; the staff and pupils who shared our Book Brunch in the library; the Science Department for supervising the Space Quiz; Mrs Magellan, our new Librarian, who was thrown into the deep end and was a star; and Jessica and her mum whose space cakes and tray bakes sold out in five minutes.
Special thanks to those who took part in the Sponsored Read. Don’t forget to return your completed Sponsored Read form and your sponsor money to your Tutor by Wednesday 2nd October. All returned sponsor forms will be entered into a prize draw.
