Story: Charley Fitton, Nicolle Smith & Amber Williams, St Catherine’s School Council

St. Catherine’s Catholic Primary School recently held a living library in our school hall, which was a great success. We had lots of visitors to the library to meet with our ‘living’ books. We were very lucky to have some great books such as Bishop John Rawsthorne, Inderjit Bhogal, Rashida Hassanali, Saleema Imam and Dina Martin.

First people had to choose a book – they could read through a synopsis that the living book had written to find out a bit more before choosing. People then got to ask the questions of their book and could sit back and enjoy listening. It was a really good way of finding out about the story of people’s lives.

Our visitors really enjoyed the day and one said, “I enjoyed finding information about other people’s history.”

“The living library was great fun because we got to interview people and know a bit about their life like Saleema. She went to China while the Beijing games were on.” Iqra Ahmed

“I like the interview because it was exciting and my favourite was Inderjit Bhogal because he was very interesting and he used to go to school with Lenny Henry.” Kasam Hussain
