Everyone's opinion is valued, - but we do love to disagree! We discuss the Carnegie shortlist - and many other things. We eat cake and biscuits. The group is open to all students. You do not need to read all shortlisted books and most are available in audio version. Carnegie Reading Group meet every Thursday lunchtime, Pink Wafers are a must. We will end with a "....and the winner is" party on the day the winner is announced. Will we agree with the announced winner?........ probably not! :)

Group activity. Share nicely girls!
