Year 7 Students Presented with Book Trust Books

Folkestone Academy along with The Book Trust promote reading by giving all Year 7 students a book to keep. This is organised by Academy Librarian Mrs Melia, she comments: "Students are given a list of a good selection of books to choose from, once chosen they are always asking me  “are the books here yet Miss?”  and are very excited when we tell them that they can actually keep the book."

The Academy has been involved with the Book Trust Buzzbooks project since 2007, Mrs Melia comments: "It always makes me happy to see the students faces when they are given the book."

A Year 7 student comments: "I've been so excited for this book so I can start reading as soon as I get home."
