Established in 1936 by Andrew Carnegie, the Carnegie book award is a prestigious medal that is annually awarded for literature aimed at young readers. Young people’s reviews and opinions are taken into account when deciding on the winners and the shadowing programme allows students to review and debate the shortlisted books with other readers across the country.
This year, The West Bridgford School will be joining in the fun. Pupils from years 7, 8 and 9 can get involved in the group; participation will include a weekly meeting, group discussions on the variety of shortlisted books and writing reviews which will be published to the WBS Carnegie page. This is a great opportunity for students to read, debate ideas and contribute to the nationwide discussion. If you enjoy reading and would like to get involved please fill in the application form attached (or collect one from the library) and return to Ms Afford or Ms Hemm in the learning centre by Friday 13th March.
