The English Department would like the thank everyone who got involved with book week last week. We had 196 votes in the survey, as well as a great turn out at both Miss Sangmeister’s creative writing group and the book week parade today.
Scarily, one in five students in Australia are struggling at a Year 4 level of reading when they start high school. Creating engagement around events like book week are such a great way to combat this and ignite or foster a love of reading.
The top ten book as voted by staff and students are:
The Hunger Games Trilogy
Mortal Engines by Phillip Reeve
Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan
Tomorrow when the War Began by John Marsden
A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J K Rowling
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J K Rowling
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
