Patron of reading, Non Pratt
Our wonderful Patron of Reading, Non Pratt, worked with some of our older students on Monday 8th October. Year 10 wrote letters to themselves, focussing on expressing their own voices by thinking what they might be doing in the future. One letter got left on a table after the students left and reduced Non to tears – she loves our students and their creativity! Non then talked to a couple of Year 11 classes about the power of stories which made the audience aware of their default assumptions. Many of them were surprised during the interactive pop-quiz on the Bechdel test… A wonderful afternoon, as always.
