Students and parents were treated to an evening of spooky fun at our first ever Halloween Horror reading event. Screams echoed throughout the corridors as visitors completed our spine-chilling book hunt (made particularly frightening through the scare-tactics of Mr Tovey, Mrs Gibb, Evren Eren, Billy Hitchcock, Talitha Fisher and Ellen Wyldes).
Down in the library, students and parents were introduced to a range of horror books and were also provided with incredibly useful information from members of the Blandford Library team who were there to promote all of the e-books and e-audio books which can be accessed online for free via the library’s website and app, ‘Borrow Box’. As well as hot chocolate, sweets and treats, students were finally entertained by Mr Tovey, our mystery ghoul, who delivered a particularly creepy story in the darkness of an unlit library.
Special thanks must go to Tesco for providing us with a range of treats and to the Blandford Rotary Club who lent some of their fabulous Halloween Angus Woods props to us enabling us to transform our corridors into a House of Horror.
