World Book Day

Brian Patten, a local author, treated Year 7 students at Newton Abbot College to a poetry reading especially for World Book Day 2014.  Brian has written many poetry books for both children and adults and paid a special visit to the College on Thursday 6 March to share some of his work. The aim of the visit was to raise the profile of poetry within the College whilst giving the students a chance to meet a real-life author.
