Parents and students are, once again, invited to particiapte in the School's Summer Reading Challenge, a programme that our Library initiated 10 years ago.
To take part, students are required to read two books (one of which has to be fiction) over the summer holiday and then submit a review of one of the books by the end of September, to the librarians. Whitgift Libraries will be open to parents (and students) on Saturday 30 June, allowing parents to support their children in selecting which books to read. Both libraries will be open from 10am - 12noon, and the librarians will be on hand to offer assistance and guidance, if you should require it.
The reviews will be judged in the Autumn Term and winners will be awarded prizes at a special assembly. The best reviews will also be displayed in the Library to encourage other readers.
The Reading Challenge is designed to increase passion for reading amongst students and it has been immensely pleasing to have so many of them participating in previous years' Challenges. We look forward to seeing even more boys involved this year.
If you have further questions regarding the Summer Reading Challenge please do not hesitate to contact Head Librarian, Ms Bauer (020 8633 9927).
