Author, Sufiya Ahmed, visits AKS

In the last week of the spring term, we welcomed our guest author Sufiya Ahmed to the AKS library to host a series of talks and workshops.  Award-winning children's author, Sufiya, talked to Year 9 about her interesting political career as a parliamentary researcher and communications advisor, as well as her life as an author.  She introduced us to some of the themes in her first book, ‘Secrets of the Henna Girl’ and the students enjoyed learning about different cultural traditions alluded to in the story. 

During her visit, Sufiya also met with Hiliary Douglas-Brown and our Young Soroptimist club to talk about political campaigning. Finally, Sufiya spent the afternoon inspiring our budding young writers in a creative writing workshop exploring the theme of "escape." Sufiya commented on how bright, articulate and engaged our students were throughout the day.

Well done to all those involved!  Thank you to the Sufiya for leading three fascinating sessions and to the Fylde Soroptimists for funding her visit.
