World Book Day

World Book Day was celebrated at Newent Community School with a visit from Joffre White, a children’s author and Patron of Reading.

He entertained Year 7 and 8 children with a Reading Motivator talk, which encouraged them to hold on to their dreams and never give up, and taught them that reading was only boring if you hadn’t found the right book!

He also delivered creative writing workshops which engaged the children and challenged them to write a short story to go on his website – the first entry was delivered to the library by the end of the day!
