World Book Day (March)

A time to celebrate books!   We start the day with a reading breakfast with our year 7 and year 9 Reading Buddies.  This is followed up with students taking part in a number of competitions  at break and lunchtime.  The staff of Hungerhill all show their support by dressing up as book characters and always get involved in the staff competition.

World Book Night (April)

The library celebrate World Book Night with some of our  year 9 students and year 3 students from our five feeder schools.  Our events for World Book Night always take place after school and we like to finish with bedtime stories and treats.   The students are encouraged to  wear pyjamas for our PJ parties or dress as a character from Alice In Wonderland when we hosted “The Mad Hatters Tea Party”.   Last year we had hosted hot chocolate and cookies evening which resulted in a “Murder in the Library.  The year 3 students joined out year 9 detectives and solved the library murder.

Greenaway (March-June)

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).
