For the first time, Hanford is taking part in the New Horizons Book Award run by Dorset Libraries. The Award ‘aims to encourage young people to explore some of the best fiction by exciting new authors.’
It was launched at Hanford on Thursday, November 12th by Ms. Bevan from Blandford Library. During her presentation, the Fourth and Fifth Forms had a chance to look at all the covers of all the shortlisted books and to listen to the openings before voting for their favourite two. The girls are itching to read all the books now and to take part in the next phase of the Award - a writing and an art competition.
