As you may be aware, this year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl,
a writer, inventor and an inspiration to many millions of young people across the world.
In order to celebrate this milestone anniversary at Joseph Swan Academy, we will be holding an Academy Respect Day centred on the life and work of Roald Dahl, to be held on Friday 21st October 2016. We would love for our students to really get a feel for the life of the acclaimed author, his inspirations and some rather intriguing facts that they may not know.
One of the ways that students and parents alike can get involved in the celebration is by participating in our book swap shop. You are invited to donate any books that are in good condition to our swap shop. In exchange for each book donation, your child will be granted a ‘golden ticket’ that will be worth the value of one book that may be used at the swap shop on the Academy’s Roald Dahl Day.
We hope that the day will reignite our students’ love of Roald Dahl’s work and be an enjoyable day for everyone involved.
If you have any further questions, comments or suggestions regarding the day, please feel free to contact either Mr Lamb or Miss Gilhespy via the Academy’s contact number or email.
