New Year Book Resolutions and Recommendations January 2019

Our new & exciting display, launched on Monday 7 January, is all about staff sharing their New Year reading resolutions and recommendations. Our library assistants, Carrie, Josh & Kelly have been busy chatting to lots of staff and snapping their photos.

Kicking it off was Mr Scott , our Acting Head teacher and his recommendation is The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr, because it’s his little girl’s favourite! His resolution: to read more books

Our library assistants excelled themselves with our new display. Mr Wormald in the PE department has resolved to read for himself one evening in the working week. A good read for all mountaineers & would-be climbers is his recommendation ️‍♂️

The reading recommendation from Mr Smith in the Maths department is The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien.  Mr Smith says his resolution is to carry on being happy when he is reading. Sounds like an excellent #Resolution2019 #booksmakeushappy

Mrs Ross in the music department resolves to make time to read for herself, not only with her children. Her recommendation: Harry Potter. Which should be a rites of passage for all!


Mr Tsotsi from the RMPS department has his plans for reading African fiction & humour and we can have no argument with his recommendation to keep on reading.

Mr Ord in the Business Education department doesn’t have a resolution, but does recommend the book Absolute Power by David Baldacci. Set at the heart of political power in Washington DC, this is a sizzling thriller.

Mr Terron, one of our English teachers, is a huge Game of Thrones fan and can’t wait for no.6 in the series. The Winds of Winter by George RR Martin is scheduled for publication in mid-2019. Mr Terron resolves to read more young adult fiction this year. Hear hear!

Finally, Mrs Toonen wants to read more of her non-fiction books on her book shelves at home and her recommendation: choose what you want to read.
