A SCHOOLGIRL from Welwyn has picked up an award for sharing her “marvellous thoughts and observations” on books she read.
Eleanor Connery-Needham, a pupil at St Mary’s School, won the ‘Most Interesting Written Responses to Books Read’ gong in the east of England’s Read For My School awards.
The 11-year-old had to read a book and then answer several questions about it for an online log.
