The culmination of some hard but enjoyable work!
Last Tuesday saw the Hampshire Book Award 2021 final vote, a country-wide event organised by Hampshire School Library Service and run on Teams.
Twelve Year 7/8 students each read six books with the task of judging which was the best. After much debating, disagreements and deliberations they submitted their verdicts! It was fantastic to see their enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for literature.
Whilst the votes were being counted they took part in an online quiz competing against other Hampshire secondary schools.
Finally, the winner of the Hampshire Book Award was announced: ‘The Invincible Summer with Juniper Jones’ by Daven McQueen.
Mrs Chads commented:
"A fantastic day was had by all, and we are looking forward to hopefully meeting the author in October. What a wonderful day with some wonderful students."
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
Some of our talented musicians were able to play to their parents and carers in a Summer Showcase on Monday evening. Here's a mini taster of our band and their amazing musical talent! #WeAreEggars https://t.co/3wIeXrP16D 6:47 AM - 22 Jul 2021
