YORKSHIRE HEAT


12th November
The boys from Roundhay School of Technology College were always going to be hard to beat as they had won this heat last year and had staryed together as a unit for today' heat. Having read lots of books in the intervening year it wasn't surprising that they won. Lady Manner's School A gave them a good run and they ended second. St Martin's Ampleforth A came third. The heat was kindly sponsored by The Kirklees School Library Services and Council. The library staff had the day well organised in the grand old Cleakheaton Hall. Parents, librarians and teachers were able to view the events from the surrounding balcony. Schoolhouse Books supported this heat and had set up a small display within the hall.
Well that's the first week over and all the winning teams have looked pretty impressive.
Happy reading
