Appledore Book Festival

Schools Programme

Posted on: 07/10/2016

This week we welcomed author Bali Rai into school as part of the Appledore Book Festival Schools programme.  He spoke to Year 10 pupils about his love of books and reading. He gave us a truly interesting and challenging talk about what it means to be a British teenager and spoke about his childhood growing up in multi-cultural Leicester.  He tackles issues like racial prejudice, drugs and the importance of tolerance and understanding between cultures. He spoke about life as it is and to not be frightened to talk openly and honestly about any issue.
