Meet Our Library Ambassadors

 

These are some of our Ambassadors who range from Years 7-11. At the moment, we have around 15 Ambassadors who were picked due to their high interest in the school library and their love of reading.

Their roles include:

  • Representing the library across the school and outside of school on trips and visits

  • Help the library in it's growth and promoting it 

  • Knowing our everchanging 'Books of the Month' and our 'Book Club Reads' 

  • Being friendly, welcoming and helpful to new students using the library's facilities

  • Creating a relationship with the local libraries as well as knowing what they have on offer to the general public

BASH 2023

Book Awards St Helens (BASH) is the annual book award scheme run by St Helens Schools Library Service, where children and young people are encouraged to read modern and enticing fiction, written specially for them.

Through a series of library-based workshops, and by debate and critical appreciation, the students vote for their favourite book and choose a winner.

Each year there is a special BASH celebration event at a library, when the winning title is announced by a prominent children’s author.

St Cuthbert's Library Ambassadors have taken part in two years of BASH now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a fantastic opportunity for children and young people to meet some of their favourite authors and help them develop a love of reading.
