Mrs Bhatti continues, ‘Our Book Club still needs to read a few more books before deciding on St Augustine’s Priory favourite book.    When decided upon, our nomination will be forwarded, along with the nominations from the rest of the schools participating.  Following this, and depending on votes cast, the winning book of ‘Ealing Teen Read 2020’, will be announced.’
