Reading Promotion Session

Session for pupils promoting different genres/authors of books planned and led by St Columba's College Librarian at St John Fisher.

Aims

To inspire pupils to want to read something different particularly over the holidays but also generally by introducing them to a variety of different books.

Pupils enthusiastic about the books they have looked at and keen to borrow them from their local libraries/school.

Background

First session was in June 2019

Resources
