Jewish Book Week

On 24th February 2015, JCoSS hosted a Jewish Book Week event to celebrate the stories of the ‘righteous among the nations’.  Sixty able and ambitious students in Year 9 were selected to have a two-hour workshop with the author Antony Lishak.  Students then went on to produce their own writing inspired by stories that they had researched.  A selection of writing was chosen and students worked with Ms Blitz on their content and delivery.  Year 6 students from Akiva School were invited to present the writing that they had prepared during similar workshops at Akiva.  Parents and grandparents attended a diverse afternoon presentation during which our students displayed their creative talents.  Organisers from Jewish Book Week were in attendance and they were impressed by the standard of the writing of our students. Some of the students’ work will be displayed on the Jewish Book Week website.
