The Read 2017
This week saw the launch of ‘The Read 2017’ following the success of last year’s inaugural competition. ‘The Read 2017’ is a reading initiative for lower school pupils organised by librarians from several secondary schools in Stockport.
Hazel Grove High is taking part in ‘The Big 5’ category and pupils who sign up are challenged to read the five shortlisted novels below and vote for their favourite. The overall winner, selected by readers from all of the participating schools, will be announced at an awards ceremony at Bramhall High School on Wednesday 29th March, hosted by the author M.G. Harris.
“The shortlisted authors are thrilled to have been selected and are poised to answer pupils’ questions about the books and encourage their reading.”
The winner of last year’s ‘The Big 5’ award was Kim Slater for her book ‘Smart.
Please see Mrs Seed in the Library if you would like to participate in this year's competition - it's not too late!
