The 'Bookaneers' Graduation Ceremony

07 May 2021


In a new initiative started at the start of the Spring Term, eight 3rd Form boys have been taking part in a weekly book club, called ‘Bookaneers’ led by Ma’am Beattie-Zarb, designed to nurture reading through fun pirate-themed antics and book-related activities. A favourite of the group was the book scavenger hunt, in which the Bookaneers used inference and English skills to find a certain page, hidden in a book somewhere in the library.  An additional challenge came in their attempts to beat Ma’am Corrigan in a book themed quiz... unfortunately for the boys, Ma’am’s literary prowess was too much. Alas all good things must come to an end, and on Friday the boys graduated in an official ceremony (complete with the traditional throwing of hats and awarding of certificates), to make room for the next generation of Bookaneers!
