CORPUS Christi pupils enjoyed a fun end of term treat - with the aim of encouraging them to read over the summer holidays.

A “Magical Mad Hatters Tea Party” inspired by the book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, was held in Knightswood Library, and special visitors made an appearance.

Actor and author, Stewart Ennis, shared some of his poetry and tales, while magician, David Ennis, shared some funny stories with a magical twist.

On Monday, June 24, families packed into the library after school and kids wore handmade hats inspired by a book they have enjoyed reading this year, before leaving them on display for the local community to enjoy.

“Down the Rabbit Hole” cupcakes and sweet treats were enjoyed, “Eat Me, Drink Me” labels decorated the feast table, and in true Wonderland fashion, balloons and bunting were used to decorate the library.

Vicky Kytzia, principal teacher, said: “Despite the horrific weather, including thunder and lightning, we were overwhelmed with the attendance at this event. It really was a magical afternoon with lots of laughter including excellent feedback from our families. Our reading culture has flourished and most importantly - our families have had fun. ‘You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.’”
