World Book Day / PKS Literacy Festival

We are thrilled to share that the first-ever two-day 'President Kennedy Literature Festival' took place on Thursday, March 7th (World Book Day) and Friday, March 8th. The festival was a huge success, with our students experiencing an enriching literary event. 

We were honoured to have special guests Coventry Poet Laureate John Bernard and international author Bali Rai visit our school to inspire our students. 
Every child in Key Stage 3 had the opportunity to attend a talk or workshop with one of these renowned speakers. A copy of Bali Rai's book was given as a memento to every student in Year 7, and they all had the opportunity to have their copy personally signed by Bali himself. 

John Bernard hosted a lunchtime open mic session on World Book Day, showcasing the talent and creativity of our students - the atmosphere was electric! Festival stalls were set up for students to explore, featuring quizzes, competitions, and valuable career advice from a visiting lecturer from Coventry University. 

The festival was filled with celebrations as our students showed remarkable engagement, creativity, passion, and PRIDE throughout the event. 
We are incredibly proud of their hard work and enthusiasm.                                                    

Mrs Jones, 
Assistant Headteacher and Subject Leader of English
