National Libraries Week

Whalley Range 11-18 High School recently celebrated National Libraries Week, an annual event to celebrate and promote our much-loved libraries. This year the focus was on wellbeing.

The 8th of October 2018 saw the start of National Libraries Week. Whalley Range 11-18 High School is proud to have an amazing library with great resources. It is more than just a library, it’s a place where students can come to revise, work on computers, read or carry out research.

In order to celebrate our fantastic library, and libraries in general, a number of activities were arranged. Students could write their own short stories, write an alternative ending to a book that they have read, or take part in lunchtime activities:

Golden Tickets were placed in some of our books and if students were lucky enough to find one they were rewarded with a book of their choice.

At our Craft Club, which runs every Thursday lunchtime in the LRC, students made miniature books. This was a lot of fun and students had a great time designing their own covers.

The week ended on a high note, with Mr O’Hara and the school choir joining us in the LRC with a great performance of popular songs.

Mrs Davies, LRC Manager, said:

This has been a fantastic week and students have enjoyed taking part in all the fantastic activities and competitions. Libraries are key in schools and it is important to celebrate them. The week ended with some great performances from the school choir – everyone left with their spirits raised.
