Summer Reading Challenge

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

The certificates and medals have arrived for the children that managed to complete this year's reading challenge. They will be presented to them this week.
It was particularly difficult to complete the challenge this year due to the closure and relocation of Hilldene Library. Hopefully many of you have visited the new library and have had a look around.
Well done to all of the children that completed the challenge this year.
