World Book Day (March)
To celebrate World Book Day, Hungerhill form time is extended for a whole school read. All members of staff and students stop working and read their book, or a newspaper of choice. Following the whole school read, the Library runs a competition at break and lunchtime for all students.
World Book Night (April)
We try to celebrate this event jointly with our five feeder schools. The Library hosts a pyjama party outside of the normal school day. Some of our Year 9 students help to organise this event, including games, food, and party bags. We always look forward to greeting our guests as they arrive in their pyjamas, and end the evening with bedtime stories.
The Library staff, along with a number of Year 9 students, work alongside our feeder schools' Year 3 pupils, doing a number of activities, including book reading, a Library visit, and a day visit to Hungerhill School. During this day visit, the pupils will be involved in a workshop and will complete their book reviews, which will be posted onto the web. The season is finished with a grand final event at Hungerhill (please refer to the calendar for the current date).
