National Library Week 2019

We celebrated Libraries Week 2019 with lots of activities and events at St Cuthbert's Library with this year's theme of celebrating the role libraries in a digital world. We joined the rest of the nation by showing what our much-loved library along with the innovative and diverse services and activities that we have on offer here at St Cuthbert's.

Take a look at what we did throughout the special week.

Spoken Word Poetry

On 10th October we celebrated World Mental Health Day with some Spoken Word Poetry. Each of our finalists spoke their truth about living in the digital age and what the 'Truth' means to them.


Make Your Mark Vote

Earlier this month, the whole school took part in 'Make Your Mark'. It gives young people aged 11-18 across the UK the opportunity to get involved and have their voices heard, by helping to decide what Members of the UK Youth Parliament should debate and vote on. 

During Library Week, our School Council from Years 8, 9 and 10 helped to count up the total number of votes on issues for the UK and devolved issues as well as local ones.









Some of the main issues were mental health, protecting the environment, welcoming refugees, tackling hate crime and child poverty as well as knife crime.

It was important for us, as a school, to take take part to show that voting is still so important in this digital world we now live in.
