News from the Library

Mrs McQuillin, School Librarian is continually organising events to promote reading and a love of books at Birkdale Senior School. Author Sarah Mussi visited recently to talk about her new book "Here be Dragons". Sarah has written many fictional books for children and teens. All S1 (Y7) boys took part in an interactive workshop which was both fun and educational.


A number of S3 (Y9) boys are also taking part in the Carnegie Shadowing group. They are all reading the nominated books to achieve the Carnegie Book Medal. There are seven books in total to read, after which the boys post a review on the website. The group vote for their winner and see if it matches that of the professionals!

This is a great opportunity for our boys to read something different from their normal taste.

Well done to them all Max, Satyam, Daoud, Adam and Max.
