The Grade 7 learners at Al Falaah College meet every Monday and Wednesday, during break, to talk “Books.”
The discussions at our meetings centred around books which we have borrowed from the Book Club as well as from the library. There was interest in the different genres of books so we chatted about books which ranged from hot water bottle to spine-chilling reads. We found, also, that our discussions took us on multiple journeys from the jungles of South America, to the exotic royal palaces of Iran, to the fjords of Norway and to places that exist only in the imagination of great writers.
Husnaa E. Moosa (7C) had this to say:
“The weekly meetings of the Book club had me either holding my breath or adventuring into the unknown. Every week was a new experience.”
During the year local writer Fadielah Moosa was invited to our school, by the Book Club . She spoke to the Grade 11 and 12 girls about her book titled Take Control.
Naseehah Omar (11 C) gave us a synopsis of the novel.
“ Take Control is a thrilling story which encompasses the lifestory of a young woman who, despite the many trials and tribulations she had encountered, can still find it in herself to persevere and strive for the best. “
In her report Naseeha Omar also indicated that the novelist had the learners sitting on the edge of their seats with her hard hitting expose of female abuse.
