On Friday 29th October Wood End School were delighted to welcome Cressida Cowell, the author of ‘How to train your Dragon’ series and her new book ‘Which way round the Galaxy’, to open our great new learning hub, which includes a fabulous, well-resourced library, spacious computer suite, and music room.
Cressida delivered lively, thought provoking assemblies and personally signed lots and lots of books!
Towards the end of the day the whole school community, including Harpenden Town Mayor, Fiona Gaskell, assembled outside where Cressida officially opened our learning hub by cutting the ribbon.
Cressida put on X (formerly known as Twitter), “Amazing day, had the pleasure of OPENING a truly magnificent new school library at Wood End School in Harpenden, here with the inspirational head teacher and with the wonderful and very experienced librarian.”
Richard Boulton said, “We are delighted with our new resource and it will definitely further enhance reading for pleasure at Wood End. Our full time librarian has ensured that children of all ages have a plethora of quality literature to choose from. We could not have achieved this without the constant support of FoWE (Friends of Wood End), our parents, governors and staff, and a significant contribution for books from The Harpenden Trust.”
