Worcestershire Teen Book Awards
Year 9 pupils Nicole Chan, Rebecca Harris, Linda Chen, Lorna Rolinson and Lily Gawlik represented MSJ at the annual Worcestershire Teen Book Award Ceremony and Inter-school Quiz at Worcester County Hall on Friday 18 March.
Between them the girls had to read and research the 6 shortlisted books during the Spring Term in preparation for the quiz. Competition was fierce and the girls achieved a respectable 5th position out of 15 teams taking part.
Key Stage 3 students from Worcestershire had the opportunity to vote for their favourite book from the short list and ‘Frozen Charlotte’ by Alex Bell was announced the winner. The girls also enjoyed hearing from Costa Book Award shortlisted author Hayley Long.
