The Phoenix Book Awards 2017
Lambeth Secondary Schools celebrate the Phoenix Book Awards 2017 at Norwood.
I just wanted to drop you a quick message to say how much I enjoyed the morning yesterday. The organisation was fantastic, and all the students were great. Katherine and I were made to feel very welcome at Norwood, and your students are a credit to you! There was a fab shortlist of books, so I’m very excited that Boy X won, and the trophy is now sitting proudly on the shelf beside my books.
I was very honoured to have Norwood championing Boy X! They did a fantastic presentation, their reviews were fab (well done Ibrahim! and thanks to Ella, Aliyah, and Jason for their reviews) - and the drama piece for Katherine’s book was great!
Thanks again for a fantastic event!
Thank you to everyone from all the schools who joined us to celebrate this year's awards and to all the fabulous librarians, teachers and authors too who made it such a memorable morning.

Thank you to everyone and a particular well done to Norwood School students who made excellent hosts and were enthusisatic, polite ambassadors.
