We were fortunate enough to take a group of Year 7 to 10 students to Waterstones to not only choose a book for themselves but also to choose the stock for our new book vending machine! The staff were so helpful as they took the time with each student to discuss their preferences and then they directed them to some wonderful titles! Once we’d made our purchases, we popped over to The Book Cafe where we had some tasty treats and found a retreat to start on some reading! We all had a fabulous time and wish to thank all the staff who made the experience so magical. Special praise to Mrs Crocker who organised the trip and Mrs Giles who has enabled students to be more empowered through reading.
