Since its inception, the St Edward’s boys have loved taking part in the Awesome Book Awards, hosted by Cranleigh School. Last year, the boys loved reading all five books on the shortlist, but it was Vashti Hardy’s ‘Brightstorm’ that got their vote – a wonderful story about Arthur and Maudie Brightstorm and their adventure to reach South Polaris in their sky-ship. ‘Brightstorm’ was closely followed by ‘Wildspark’ another life-changing adventure. And so, we were over the moon, that Vashti joined us at St Edward’s last Friday. It was a great adventure! Our imaginations were pushed to discover, we created, collaborated and put pen to paper.
What an opportunity to have an author in house to spark our creative & story-telling talents!
