At Hillbrook we are made from stories!

We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded 2nd prize in the prestigious World Book Day competition, enjoying a prize of £3000 worth of books! 


This year, thousands of schools nationwide were challenged to use Oliver Jeffers new book, 'A Child of Books' for inspiration for a display promoting a love of reading. For the creation, masterminded by our talented Art teacher Jasmin Dwyer, children, parents and staff worked together to create miniature 3D houses focused around a favourite story. 


This is a fantastic achievement for Hillbrook! Thank you to everyone who got involved in making this such a success. Special thanks go to Miss Dwyer for her hard work and commitment to the project. 


More pictures of the spectacular display are featured on the World Book Day website The press release announcing our exciting news along with an overview of how and why we got involved, something which formed part of the competition entry requirement, is also included.
