Join in the Summer Reading Campaign
All books taken out from the Library from Thursday 11th July will be issued until September. Why not come along to the Library before / after the summer holidays and recommend a book you have enjoyed to others on the "Recommended Read" board
Why not try extreme reading....
The extreme reading competition is open for years 7 & 8. In order to enter all you need to do is take a picture of yourself reading in the most unusual, funny or far flung place during the Summer holidays.
The photo must be brought in on the first day back to school.
Prizes will be given out to five students for the most unusual photos and there is a special first place prize, selected by Mrs Salmon.

Every year, thousands of families all over the country are involved in the UK's biggest reading event for children in libraries, the Summer Reading Challenge. In 2013, the Challenge is called Creepy House.
The aim of the challenge is to get children aged 4 -12 to read six books from their library during the summer holidays.
It's great fun for kids, it keeps them reading through the summer preventing their reading ability from dipping and what's more, it doesn't cost a penny to join.
How do I sign my child up?
Just head to your local library at the beginning of the summer holidays. Staff will enrol your children - it's completely free of charge - and every child will receive a membership pack.
What books can my children read?
The Summer Reading Challenge is designed for children of all ages and reading abilities. They can read any books they like - fact books, stories, joke books, picture books - it's up to them. Audio books count too! As long as you're borrowing them from the library, they all count.
Do the children who finish the challenge receive anything?
Yes, everybody who reads six books or more will receive a certificate and a medal. There are stickers and other small prizes to collect along the way.
Will anything else be going on in the library over the summer?
To find out what other activities are happening in your local library go to http://www.devon.gov.uk/thezone or pop in and say hello.
Two events for Carnegie
1. We urgently need students to form a shadowing group and represent the College at the annual schools shadowing event to be held this year at Tavistock College on Wednesday 19th June.
If you think you might be interested in having fun and taking part just drop into the Library or speak to Miss Strongman in the English Department.
2. Carnegie Judges vs Tavistock Students
All staff and students are invited to take part - Join the debate, read a book and give it a score
We’ve allocated a coloured book to each of the titles. Why don’t you read one (or all 8 if you’re up to it) of the shortlisted books, give it a score out of 10 and add to the display in the Library. How many books can you read before 19th June? We’ll tot up all your scores and compare our winner with the official choice and see if you agree!
