A team of proactive Year 7 students are organising a Book Fair Event to help raise funds for the school and their chosen charities. Throughout the week of February 1st to 5th, brand new books will be on sale at the school during school hours. The Year 7 team are hoping that many people will visit the school and buy some of the lovely range of books which are on offer.
The team have put together an event plan and advertising posters and through organising the event themselves are learning to work effectively as a team, confidence skills, leadership skills as well as effective marketing and event managements skills.
Haiden Williamson, Year 7 student realises the importance of advertising the event and states “Obviously it is important we get leaflets printed and handed out to as many people as possible in the Stamford area as soon as possible to maximise the amount of people who will hopefully take the time to come along”. Haiden also realises the power of social media and is working with the marketing team at SWA to advertise the event on Facebook, Twitter and the school’s website.
The Year 7 team are working with a company called Scholastic Book Fair, who provide a range of children’s books for schools to sell.
If you’d like to grab yourself some children’s books, please come along to the school during the week of February 1st to 5th.
