Students, staff and visitors have celebrated the Grand Opening by author Sara Grant of the colourful and spacious new Library Reading Room.
An adjacent unused and overgrown courtyard was roofed over to increase the size of the Main School Library. This was funded by a DfE improvement grant in recognition of overcrowding in the popular and busy Library. The new room provides a comfortable and quiet space for choosing and reading books and will support literacy skills and reading for pleasure.
Sara Grant spent the day at Featherstone enthusing students about books and reading, and sharing ideas for writing their own stories. Stacy Fernandes and Alisha Verma (pictured with author Sara Grant), winners of the READ logo competition received their prizes and everyone enjoyed the celebration cake baked by Jaspreet Khaneja.
