On Friday 24 June, 90 of our pupils, sixth form and staff took part in the Guinness World Record reading attempt. 75 schools took part in this record breaking attempt and we were very pleased to be a part of this as it's such a great way to promote reading with our pupils. We had to read an extract from 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' by J. K. Rowling and this had to last thirty minutes to qualify for the record. We had the pleasure to welcome 'Chilla Black' from the 'Shiverpool Tours' who was our narrator and she did a fantastic job! Here are some comments from our pupils who took part in the event:
We also welcomed Radio Merseyside to our school to report on our involvement in this great reading record attempt. Here's what some pupils who were interviewed had to say:
