Onjali Q. Raúf visit to THS – Thursday 7 December

Tuesday 21 November 2023 | By Megan Connor

We are delighted to share information about a super exciting literary event which will be held at Teesside High School, to which all children in Years 3-6 are invited. Award winning children’s author Onjali Q. Raúf, writer of The Boy at the Back of the Class (which is about to make its debut in London’s West End), The Night Bus Hero and many other best-selling books, will be visiting school to speak to both our pupils and those visiting from local primary schools on Thursday 7 December.

This exciting talk will be paired with a Q&A and book signing session, and will be held in the Main Hall from 10.00am-11.30am.

This visit has been organised in partnership with Drake the Bookshop and there is an opportunity for parents to purchase books to be signed by Ms Raúf on the day. You can do this via the via the Google form circulated. If you do wish to purchase a book, payments are to be made to Drake the Bookshop. Please enclose your payment in an envelope marked with your child’s name and form, and return it to your child’s form teacher by Monday 27 November.

This event is not to be missed and we are confident it will provide fantastic inspiration for our pupils, further instilling their love of reading. We look forward to welcoming Ms Raúf to our school, and sharing updates and photographs from this brilliant event with you.
