All of the Year 7s at Brooke Weston have received a gift-wrapped book this Christmas courtesy of the library. Students were able to choose one of the titles that were selected for the Book Buzz scheme and lots of people have spent the last week preparing them for distribution at tutor time. Particular thanks go to the students who wrapped the books; Zara, Ana, Joao, Ross, Callum and Sai and Ms King who labelled the books.
In previous years the scheme has been funded by the Government. This year it was up to individual schools to purchase the books, which have been selected by a panel of experts.
Librarian Mr Jones said: ‘This year’s consignment of around 180 books has come out of the library budget which is why we have wrapped and labelled them. There were 12 titles to choose from and the most popular was My Best Friend and Other Enemies by Catherine Wilkins. The students are really excited by the scheme and it is a nice way to wish them a happy Christmas.’
