A PARTY was held for students of Cromwell Community College who took part in the Carnegie Reading event.
The celebration took place in the library with Michelle Priest, head of Year 7, Jackie Harding, library manager, Suzie Dixon, library assistant, and Louise Aldridge from Cambridgeshire Libraries.
The students take part in the event under the team name Crazy Cromwellions.
It was the second year that the Chatteris school took part in the initiative, which celebrates outstanding children’s literature.
Mrs Harding said: “Each student and staff member had to read three books and review each one. This event is national one where many schools in the country also take part.”
