To celebrate World Book Day, Hove Park School was taken over by over 20 teachers on both sites acting very strangely...for one day only, they 'became' books such as: Noughts and Crosses, The Wizard of Oz and The Great Gatsby! Students whizzed around the school to complete the Book Title Quest to win a 'booky' prize.
Year 7 participated in a successful spelling bee during assembly as led by Mrs Ruggles. Over 15 students entered the '500 words' short story competition with a chance to win two theatre tickets to see Malorie Blackman's 'Noughts and Crosses' at the Theatre Royal. All entries have been entered into the BBC Radio 2 story competition.
All students were given a free book voucher by their English teachers and around 200 books were swapped in the LRC at lunch time. Finally, a movie showing of The Great Gatsby was shown in the library at Nevill with popcorn and 1920s mocktails on sale to raise money for Our Prom. A lucky student found the winning golden ticket inside his popcorn and won a Nando's gift card. Dreams can come true!
