Springwell Anthology Book Launch

19th November 2019

Springwell Leeds East site were thrilled to host a very special book launch on November 8th. Parents and carers were invited to witness their children being presented with a certificate of achievement and a copy of a published school anthology containing their work. Each story was written independently during English lessons, or in one of the workshops run by author Russ Litten and coordinated through the First Story charity.

Students worked tirelessly to create a huge backdrop depicting the ‘Many Roads to a Happy Ending’, which is the title of the anthology but also symbolises the journey many of our students have travelled in life prior to the fantastic ‘ending’ of success in school through their published writing. The backdrop illustrated the 20 ‘roads’ of our students’ lives and some of the obstacles they have overcome.
