Reading Excellence Awards @BVC

Young readers at Bassingbourn Village College were honoured at the school’s first ever Reading
Excellent Awards evening.

Students in years 7 and 8 received certificates in recognition of their achievements in English and
reading over the year. Those who took part in external events such as the Bridge Book Awards and
the international Kids Lit competition also received certificates.

Guest speaker for the evening was Saffron Walden author Victor Watson, most famous for his
involvement in the founding of the national children’s Seven Stories Library in Newcastle and the
Paradise Barn series of children’s books.

BVC English teacher Rebecca Boxhall commented: “We had a lovely evening with parents invited
along to celebrate their children’s successes. Reading is such an important part of our lives it was
great to be able to devote a whole evening to celebrating it!”
