Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Chil­dren, parents and school staff have one last chance to trum­pet the amaz­ing work go­ing on in their schools for the Kent Lit­er­acy Awards.

The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is May 1.

Or­gan­is­ers of the an­nual event are call­ing for class­room ini­tia­tives that have cre­ated a buzz around books, writ­ing, and the spo­ken word.

Si­mon Dolby, of the KM Char­ity Team, which is or­gan­is­ing the awards, said: “There is a wide range of award cat­e­gories from best use of drama or IT to bril­liant book clubs and imag­i­na­tive read­ing cor­ners. We want to dis­cover how schools are get­ting pupils en­thused about com­mu­ni­ca­tion in all its forms.”

The win­ning en­tries will be show­cased at an awards cel­e­bra- tion at Hemp­stead House Ho­tel, Sit­ting­bourne at­tended by spe­cial guest Phil Gallagher, star of CBee­bies’ Mis­ter Maker.

This year, chil­dren can sub­mit on­line or hand­writ­ten book re­views for the chance to meet Phil at the Kent Lit­er­acy Awards. Find out more at km­char­i­tyteam. co.uk and search ‘book re­views’.

The awards are sup­ported by Kent County Coun­cil, Beanstalk, Three R’s Teacher Re­cruit­ment, Spec­savers, McCabe Ford Wil­liams, and Kent Li­braries.
