Brooke Weston is celebrating the work of CS Lewis this week with readings in assembly, activities in tutor time and displays and competitions in the library.
Although Lewis is probably best known for the best selling and much adapted Chronicles of Narnia series, he also wrote a huge number of pro-Christian texts and was professor of Literature at Cambridge University.
Members of staff have been reading excerpts from Lewis’s works during assembly this week and the library have competitions including Guess the Narnia Book (from text and the covers) plus find the Narnia characters hidden in the library. Students can also craft a snowflake for the display board. Prizes will be available and all entries must be in by the end of this week.
Mr Duguid said: ‘CS Lewis wrote such vivid and well loved characters in the Narnia series however, students may not be familiar with his other popular works which include satirical The Screwtape Letters. Lewis was a prolific and highly influential figure in 20th century literature and his work is worth commemorating, particularly this year as it is 50 years since he died.’
