Another first for the Library: a Skype event with Australian author, Jack Heath and Year 7! 7Q2 succeeded in being the top borrowing group of last term, taking over 200 books out of the library to read. As a treat they were invited to LB1 to Skype with the author of Money Run.
Even though it was near Jack’s bedtime and we hadn’t even got to morning break we made contact and were enthralled by Jack’s breathless descriptions of how he became a writer (from the age of 6!). Luckily he paused for breath occasionally, and for questions. Now 7Q2 are passing round copies of Money Run and are eagerly awaiting his new book, Hit List early next year.
