World Book Day – Maria Credali

This year the iCentre celebrated World Book day by inviting a very special guest to Barr Beacon school to perform for Year 7s. Storyteller Maria Credali, who is a part of National Literacy Trust, has performed “Seven Years a Wolf” story. The story celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in difficult circumstances, it explores the love of a father for his son and shows us how life can be not just endured but enjoyed – even in the most difficult of circumstances. An inspirational story, brimming with beautiful imagery, survival against the odds, and the triumph of good over evil. After the performance, we collected pupil’s feedback and here is what they said:

“The performance yesterday was well read and I enjoyed it, so did many other people” – Ishaaq Year 7

“The performance was incredible. I was in a trance during the entire thing. Thank you so much.” – Isabella Year 7

“I loved the performance. I thought it was great and I was listening and picturing it in my head.” – Evie Year 7

“I think that the performance was absolutely awesome! I could easily picture it in my head, that’s how good it was!” – Janelle Year 7

We are holding a short story competition for all Year 7s following Mrs. Credali’s performance. Pupils will have two weeks to write a short story using one of five short story prompts created by the library manager. The prize is a book of their choice paid for by the library. The winner will be announced in the next newsletter. Good luck to all participants. “
