Lit in Colour - 100 books for BGS Library
In 2020 Penguin released a report on 'Diversity in Literature in English Schools' which found that fewer than 1% of students at GCSE study a book by a writer of colour.
In response, they set up a Lit in Colour project to support schools in the UK to make the teaching and learning of English literature more inclusive. I bid for books for BGS and Penguin have kindly donated 100 books to our library, which will be on display until the end of January and students are welcome to come up and borrow these.
Thank you to Mrs Fabris-Abbate for her wonderful creative skills in making the display, and to the many students who helped cut butterflies in their break times!
