Senior School Library

On Wednesday 16th January, the St Albans Schools Book Awards Day was held at St Columba's for the second year running. The Awards Day brings together students from schools in the St Albans area who have been reading the three books on the award shortlist. The books on the shortlist this year were:

The Liar's Handbook by Keren David

The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson

Kick by Mitch Johnson

Local author Jonathan Stroud finished the event with a talk to students on his books and writing, and announced the winning book which was...The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson.

The day was a really enjoyable event which celebrated books and reading and gave students the opportunity to meet like-minded students from different schools.
