The Book Nook

The Library is delighted to introduce “The Book Nook” our new area for reading, relaxing and recharging. It is an iPad/digital free zone for students who want to immerse themselves in a good book. Congratulations and a big thank you to Kitty in year 7, Audrey year 8 and Emma and Lilly, both year 9 who all suggested the winning name.

The launch of The Book Nook is part of the school’s history and will be preserved through the school’s archives. Audrey, Emma, Kitty and Lilly are part of this legacy – a brilliant achievement and honour.

 A sincere thank you to FOPHS for generously funding this valuable addition to the library. It is already a popular retreat for students in all year groups and will, without the shadow of a doubt, be enjoyed by many future generations of PHS students to come.

Neurodiversity Celebration Week

The Library joined forces with Learning Enrichment for a grand finale Neurodiversity Celebration Week event, The Books and Brains Detective Quiz. It was wonderful to see so many students taking part and successfully solving the word riddle through books that feature people with a brilliantly different mind.

The Year 7 Book Club has had their first meeting shadowing judges for the Yoto Carnegie writing award. Over the next couple of months, they will join other young people around the country who will read the seven shortlisted titles and vote for their favourite to win the Shadowers’ Choice Awards.
