Carnegie Festival 

Posted on: 14/06/2017

GTS pupils (Zuzanna Jankowska, Lauren Standen, Katie Mansfield and Georgia Duncan) took part in the Carnegie Shadowing Award hosted by Park School, Barnstaple on Monday, 12 June.  The girls presented Mal Peet's final novel, Beck - a historical fiction following the life of an orphaned mixed race boy in early 1900s.  The novel contains some disturbing passages but the girls weren't perturbed, and gave their pure and honest account of the story in front of 9 other schools.  They did us proud! 

This year's local guest author was Emma Carroll (pictured) whose latest book 'Letters from the Lighthouse' was Waterstones' Children's Book of the Month in May.
