SESTBA— South East Schools Themed Book Award
Since September 2017 a group of students have been participating in SESTBA, meeting fortnightly to discuss a range of books which they have read based on the theme “Secrets and Lies”. They voted for their favourite book, designed a book cover for the competition and wrote book reviews. On Tuesday 27th March they attended a Gala Evening at Kent College, Pembury along with other local schools participating in SESTBA. The evening was great fun and well attended. The evening commenced with the announcement of the book cover and fancy dress competition winners and the favourite book vote results. Students also listened to guest authors Patrice Lawrence and Juno Dawson, shared pizza and interacted with other local schools.

Year 9 English Students Meet Local Author Tim Dickinson
A group of Year 9 English students at Trinity had the rare opportunity of meeting local author Tim Dickinson. Mr Dickinson is in the process of writing a fiction book about a group of secondary school students who embark on a worldwide adventure. The visit, which enabled Mr Dickinson to gain valuable feedback on his writing, included an exploration of the plot and a short reading by the author. Students were also given the chance to offer their input on characters and storyline.

And Finally…..
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the Library Team welcomed students to tell us why they love their library!
