World Book Day Quiz - Winners Announced!

Scroll down for answers to quiz and list of winners
 
It's World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. 
 
Reading is high up on Northolt High School's agenda at all times, but we couldn't let World Book Day go by without marking the occasion. 
Our Head Librarian- Mrs Buck- has created a whole-school quiz that will run every period for years 7 - 10. Ambitious? Absolutely! But our students love to read, so we know this will be a success.

There will also be World Book Day tokens available for all our students. These can be exchanged for a World Book Day book in participating local bookshops and supermarkets or be used to get £1 off the cost of any book.  Students in Years 7,8 and 9 will receive their tokens during their regular library lessons.
