Ade Adepitan

Look who read Badger Class a story this week. Yes, it is the Paralympic medalist and climate champion Ade Adepitan. He read his new book, ‘The Secret Garden Under the Sea.’

The children thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story and having the opportunity to meet with an author. They enjoyed the story so much, that we have purchased some of the other stories by this author for children to borrow from our school library.
