Pupils in Year 7 and 8 took part in a festive book and gift sale this week raising £42 for two very worthy charities DRONE SAR and The Guide Dogs Association. The sale saw an abundance of books and handmade gifts including some beautiful bookmarks created at our bookmark club and some wonderful book art gifts.

Year 7 pupil Dimra Kara Bala was extremely excited to be able to share her calligraphy talent as she proudly created personalised bookmarks for those who attended the event.

We also announced the winners in the following challenges:

Form Group Book Challenge – Forms with the least amount of overdue library books on the final day of term

7SIR, 8JLN and 9ELB

The English Group Book Challenge – the most bedrock learning points on the final day of term

7SIR, 8/2SIR and 9/3LMM

Pupils were extremely happy with their chocolate treat prizes!

On behalf of QEGS Library we would like to wish all our budding librarians, pupils, students and staff a very Merry Christmas and thank you all for your support throughout the year!
