Sherborne Girls takes Extreme Reading to new heights

Published Friday 8th of November 2013 10:33:13 AM

Book-mad students and staff from Sherborne Girls in Dorset are taking part in a campaign to promote reading outside the classroom, by taking photographs of themselves reading in the wackiest and unlikeliest of places. From waterfalls to science labs, hay bales to laundry rooms, the girls have demonstrated that when it comes to reading, nowhere is off limits.

�The campaign is one of several we�ve launched to create a real buzz around the library and ensure it is a lively and vibrant place for both staff and students,� says School librarian Rachel Knight, whose inspirational marketing ideas for the library have won her a bursary place to the CILIP Annual Conference. �Extreme Reading will encourage a love of books across the whole school community and boost our already flourishing culture of reading here at Sherborne Girls.�

Says Headmistress Jenny Dwyer: �Extreme reading is a really fun and imaginative way to broaden reading and the girls have certainly risen to the challenge to see who can be the most daredevil. But it also serves to underline an important point that reading lies at the very heart of our School and is something that we encourage among our students every day.�
