Maidenhead's Big Read 2022
Dear St. Luke's families,
Today, we received an email from the organisers of Maidenhead's Big Read informing us that we had won an award for the second highest number of pupils and staff attending the events over the weekend of 5th/6th March.
Our prize is a hardback book of “Ocean Endangered” co-authored by Dr Russell Arnott of Incredible Oceans who featured during that weekend.
We have also been awarded a bundle of books, which comprises of:
- Russell Arnott’s “Ocean Endangered” book.
- 2 copies of “The Ocean is My Home” books aimed at Reception and Year 1 pupils which were freely offered to all those who attended the event during that weekend.
- Gloria Barnett’s “50 fabulous facts about Ocean Animals” aimed at pupils aged 8+. Gloria (aka the Weird Fish Lady) is a biologist, scuba diver, underwater videographer as well as an acclaimed children and adults author. She also featured at the Maidenhead Library over the MBR weekend.
These books will be added to our school library for the children to use.
Thank you for supporting the local community and our school.
