Chapel-en-le-Frith High School will continue its tradition of celebrating reading for pleasure on World Book Day which is on March 1st this year.
We will have a visiting author, Dave Cousins, talking to and working with students in Years 7 and 8. Cousins has written celebrated teen fiction books such as ‘Waiting for Gonzo’; that and plenty of other books are likely to be on sale on Friday March 2nd when local independent bookshop, Reading Matters, will be in school encouraging students to use their famous World Book day tokens.
The library will be hosting its annual book quiz at lunch time on Wednesday 28th February where students can test their knowledge of the books they’re enjoying. Any student loaning a book from our library in the week of World Book Day will be entered in to a prize raffle. And if that isn’t enough, each tutor group is going to be decorating a potato(!) as a book character of their choice!
Revivus in Chapel-en-le-Frith are now selling pre-loved school uniform with prices from just £2. Revivus are very kindly donating all the proceeds made from this back to school to buy books for our school library.
