Off to the Beach

And so we head off on our summer holidays. 88% of our posts this year have been about the school, but in the holidays every now and then we'll also throw in posts about matters of general literary interest.

Our third full year of blogging has been as busy as the others. Our main innovation this year was a start on podcasting, with several interviews, as well as Macbeth revision sessions (and there are plenty of plans for next year's podcasts). We were delighted to receive the Edublogs Best Blog Award 2008 in December. We published lots of pupils' poetry and essays, and continued posting lots of news about drama, fiction, poetry and more.

So it's time to pack a pile of books into a bag and head off...

Dear Blogger,

you are nominated for the "Top 100 Language Blogs 2009" competition. Congratulations! After last year’s success the bab.la language portal and Lexiophiles language blog are hosting this year’s worldwide language blog competition once again. We are confident to surpass more than the 350 blogs which entered the competition in 2008.

We have made two major changes to last year:

1. Due to the amount of blogs we have created categories.

2. User voting will count 50% towards final score

Voting will start on July 8, leaving you enough time to prepare your readers for the upcoming voting. Voting will close on July 27 and the winners will be announced on July 30.
