On Saturday 8th November 2014 St. John Bosco were proud to launch “Fall into Reading Festival” at Broadway library in Norris Green. Miss Strode and our amazing 6th Form Reading Buddies joined forces with Councillor Lana Orr and Liverpool LA to promote reading in our local community. The day was packed with lots of exciting activities which parents and younger members of our local community thoroughly enjoyed. All the activities were free and children were given a free book in our “Never judge a book by its cover” activity, they were read to by our 6th formers and a local author read her wonderful new children’s book. The celebration of reading at the library also had face-painting. The 6th formers also spent time in the mobile learning centre and gave information to the public about free education courses and opportunities to learn at local adult learning colleges.
It was a very successful launch to our “Fall into Reading Festival”.
