25 Jul Book Bench Competition Winners
A big well done to Grace Sherwood and Star Freeman, Year 7 students, winners of the Book Bench competition, which launched in March this year. The girls designed the bench using ideas from the book, “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett, a beautiful display of branches and trees around a hidden doorway. At the moment, the girls are working in the library to recreate their winning design onto an actual bench, which will be on display in the Crown Gate Shopping Centre in Worcester from July, this summer, where people can go to visit all of the winning designs from across the county. Following the Book Bench Exhibition, we will join an auction of the benches, in aid of Wooden Spoon – the children’s charity, so that Ipsley can own the bench and display permanently in school to celebrate our pupils’ achievement. Well done, girls!
