Shadowing Group 2019!

A group of book loving students from year 7 to year 13. We read and share our views on the books in weekly sessions in the library. We also share our reviews and votes at the end of each Award with a Shadowing Celebration Event with other schools in the area (most of us are just here for the biscuits!)
