We were incredibly lucky to have a visit from 2 Duffy role models today, Madison and Philippe. Madison's family was from Niue, and Philippe's from Tonga. They talked to the students of PES about the importance of books. Reading books can take you to another place, you are never alone with a book. The more we read the more we know, reading gives us knowledge. Reading also helps us become better writers. A lot of students could relate to Philippe - his first language was Tongan and he found reading very difficult when he was younger. He worked hard and kept reading and he is now at University and is even travelling to London to do his Masters!
Not only were they amazing readers they also had the most beautiful singing voices.
Thanks Duffy Books. We love reading and we can't wait to read all our new books!
