On Friday 23rd June 2017 we had an inspirational visit from the author Bali Rai. He was given a tour of our academy. He also encouraged pupils to read for pleasure as well as information. He talked about how reading can help you to develop skills and grow as a person in life. In his interactive assemblies he also talked about the multicultural society that we live in and British Values. In the afternoon, Bali Rai was interviewed by the Library Monitors and on Ark Radio. He also signed books and autographs for pupils and staff. It was a brilliant day!
