Addey & Stanhope Carnegie Club

Carnegie Club meets on Wednesday lunchtimes in the Library with Ms Williams the Librarian - all students are welcome! We have Year 7,8, 9 and 10 students reading the 2017 Carnegie Book Award Shortlist; we are a varied bunch of students, but are big fans of books, reading, storytelling, fantasy, adventure, sci fi, memes and pizza!
You don't have to read all 8 of the books on the shortlist to take part; and when you finish reading any of the shortlisted books don't forget to let us know what you thought of it and post a review on our page - go to Shadowing > Post a Review > search for our school > (Addey and Stanhope) and get writing!
