Year 9 Literacy Carnegie Medal Launch Evening

We were delighted with our well attended Year 9 Literacy Carnegie Medal Launch Evening on 17th May 2017.
At the event we launched our Carnegie Medal Shadow group programme. Each year, children and young people ‘shadow’ the judging process for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards; they read, discuss and review the books on each shortlist selected by CILIP’s panel of Librarian judges and engage in reading related activity online.
Young people taking part are known as ‘shadowers’. The scheme has thousands of registered reading groups across the UK and Internationally – engaging tens of thousands of children and young people in reading.
We are delighted to say our event was a well-received event which 15 students and their families attended.
