Grand final of the Ealing Readers’ Award
On Monday 20 June, six Year 7 and Year 8 students joined others from Ealing schools at the grand final of the Ealing Readers’ Award. Eight schools gave presentations on the books shortlisted for the event. Our students’ book was ‘Old School’ from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney.
In the morning a local author, Jeannie Waudby gave an engaging and informative talk about creative writing and her new novel ‘One of Us’. The presentations followed in the afternoon with our group performing an amusing excerpt which was well received. The best book award went to the hugely popular ‘Girl Online on Tour’ and Cardinal Wiseman and Greenford High were joint winners of best presentation. Congratulations to our students who were a real credit to the school.
