Book Club: Year 11 read with Prep/Pre-Prep boys

 

Just over two weeks ago, the call went out to Year 11 pupils to volunteer to take part in a new reading initiative (‘Book Club’) with boys from the Pre-Prep and Prep Schools. There was a tremendous response, and 47 Year 11 pupils have volunteered to give their time one evening a week to virtually read along with a group of younger boys via Zoom.

The demand from the Pre-Prep and Prep School students was incredible, with 117 boys signing up for the Book Club. Last week was the first week of running the Book Club and, despite the logistical challenges of relying on unerring internet connections, the sessions proved a great success. Indeed, there have been a lot of positive emails from parents of the younger boys thanking the Year 11 pupils for volunteering their time and reading expertise. The Book Club continues this week, before pausing for half term. It is hoped that it can be kept running after the break.

Many thanks to the following Year 11 pupils for helping with the Book Club:
