Southern School Book Awards

Since September, our students have been involved in the Southern Schools Book Award. Students have read five simply superb young adult novels and were given the chance to vote for their favourite.  The books on the short list were: One by Sarah Crossan, Seed by Lisa Heathfield, Bomb by Sarah Mussi, The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson and Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne.

Ms Waton and Miss Goodwin attended the awards ceremony.  Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell and past winner Bali Rai, compered the event.  Everybody was transfixed (even the Head of Roedean) by Riddell’s drawings of the authors and their books.

Many thanks to the staff and students of Roedean for hosting and organising an amazing evening.

Our students will now be reading for the Amazing Book Awards. The library is open every Tuesday lunchtime for those students who want to get involved.
