White Hills Park Federation
Nottingham,
Group status: So many of our group have read all the books. Well done.

Carnegie Group 2016

This year we have again combined the groups from the two schools in our Federation so we have 24 readers in total from Alderman White School and The Bramcote School. They are all from years 8 and 9. They can't stop reading and talking about the books. Even when I drive the Alderman White students over in the minibus they are talking about the books. It's great that once again we have former Carnegie-ers in KS4 and the Sixth form reading some of the books, reading to come along and join us on Staff Night. It's also wonderful to see so many staff getting involved this year.
