Year 7 Reading Challenge 2019
Students from the Sacred Heart receive their prizes in Assembly on 27th November
During their Induction day in July 2019 Year 7 students were set a ‘Summer Reading Challenge’ and each student was given a ‘Recommended Summer Reads’ list. They were challenged to read one of the books from the list and to fill out a Book Report form over the summer holidays.
Many students took up the challenge and handed their Book Reports during the Autumn term. The standard of reports was exceptionally high. The students were praised for their participation during an assembly and certificates and prizes were awarded to the two overall winners from each form. All students who took part in the challenge were able to count the book they had read towards their Year 7 ‘Reading Challenge’ scheme. Well done to all of them!
