This year Thornden School is taking part in the Wessex Schools Lit Fest which runs from the 2nd – 13th July 2012. Events include author visits from Kit Berry and Sarwat Chadda who will also run workshops for pupils from years 9 and 7 respectively. We are also hosting the Waterstones Wessex Literary Quiz for teams of year 7 students from local schools on Monday, 9th July 2012.
The ‘festival read’ is ‘The Hunger Games’ and copies of the trilogy are available to purchase from the library, costing £4.99 for all three books.
On Friday, 6th July 2012 there will be a coffee morning for parents, grandparents and carers in the library, when there will be an opportunity to talk about ‘The Hunger Games’ and to find out about what today’s teenagers are reading.
