Book Week Scotland and Everest Reading Challenge

St George's welcomed author and explorer Matt Dickinson to the school on Monday to launch our celebrations for Book Week Scotland.  Matt was interviewed on stage during Upper School assembly by student librarian Anushka and was quizzed among other things on what he read during his time at Everest Base Camp. The answer - "a lot!"

Later in the day Matt spoke to all the girls in Remove about his expedition to Mount Everest.  Girls in Remove have recently completed the Everest Reading Challenge which is based on Matt's book 'The Everest Files'.  Following his talk Matt judged the entries in the Everest Reading Challenge poster competition and selected the following three girls as prize winners:

  1. Chielini, RP
  2. Sannavi, RQ
  3. Grace, RQ
