Pupils and staff at Rose Hill Westonbirt School were delighted last week following the official opening of the schools new Library. Local Author John Dougherty spent an afternoon at the School, running creative workshops for each class. Mr Dougherty read from his published books, recited hilarious poems and entertained with his guitar. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and were able to ask Mr Dougherty plenty of questions about his writing.

Following the classes, the official ceremony took place with a cutting of a ribbon bedecked in Rose Hill Westonbirt colours. Once cut, a book signing with the Author took place. The event was led by the newly appointed Librarians and attended by pupils, parents, Governors and invited guests.

Commenting on the afternoon, Author John Dougherty said: I am thrilled to be a part of the opening of Rose Hill Westonbirts new Library. A Library is the most important room in a school, the most important building in a town. It is great to see a school putting such effort into ensuring children have access to a wide variety of books. John, who was himself once a teacher, has written many books including Jack Slater Monster Investigator, Niteracy Hour, Bansi OHara and the Bloodline Prophecy and Zeus on the Loose - a book shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award as 'an outstanding first novel for children'.


Many thanks to the Rose Hill Westonbirt Parents Association, who funded the new Library.
