Book Fair Organiser of the Term

Book Fair Organiser of the Term

We know how hard Book Fair Organisers work to make their Fairs a successful, fun event for their pupils. To reward those who always go the extra mile with their Book Fairs, we have started the Book Fair Organiser Awards. These exceptional teachers have won £250 worth of Scholastic Rewards for their school, but more importantly their dedication has engaged their pupils in reading in a way that is second to none.

Spring Term


Ours Spring Term Book Fair Organiser Award winner is Vivien Smith at Birkenhead Park School. Ms Smith has been involved with Scholastic both Internationally and Nationally for the last ten years. Vivien says, “It is such an honour to be chosen as book fair organiser of the term, both my librarians and myself love the opportunity prior to the fair interviewing for posts and subsequently introducing our hardworking students to Scholastics fabulous range of the latest releases linked to our Accelerated Reader Programme within school.”

The Spring Term winner of the Book Fair Organiser Awards is the incredible Rosemary Dunstan. Rosemary is a librarian at Sonning Common Primary School who runs four Book Fairs a year. As her Book Fairs are so regular, parents at Sonning Common use it as their local bookshop. She is constantly upbeat, and always looking for new ways to engage pupils and parents in reading – something that shows in the numbers of books children buy from her Fairs!
