President Kennedy School
Group status: Year 7 students reading the Carnegie Short list.

We are a group of vibrant and very keen Year 7 students. Since starting at President Kennedy, we have had a Reading Group and meet once a week with our Librarians - Ms Lindsey and Ms Ranchhod - for a fun packed lesson. We talk about the books we are reading, have great discussions and other activities.
