On Wednesday 24 March, Dr Anjuli Kaney returned to read her new book “Benny and the Boogie Monster” to our Year 2 students.

Anjuli shared “it was so nostalgic coming back to Radford and getting to see how everything has progressed so nicely. Siobhan MacLeod (2021 Collegian Captain) was fantastic and gave me a wonderful tour of the College which allowed me to reconnect with many of my ex-teachers and meet new staff (including Miri – Radford’s therapy dog)!! It’s so great to see that the school is so focused on ensuring students’ mental wellbeing is looked after”. 

Anjuli further added “I had such a marvelous time meeting the year 2 classes as well! They were all so charming, attentive and polite and it was so heartwarming getting to see their drawings of the Benny and the Boogie Monster characters. I loved answering all their questions and hearing their delightful feedback”. 


The Radford Collegians Association thank the Junior School librarians – Rachael Hind and Gemma Wilson for the opportunity and the wonderful photos.

One night after his mummy tucks him into bed, Benny stumbles into a mysterious land where he comes face to face with his greatest fear – the Boogie Monster! However, when the Boogie Monster begins tapping his feet to the sound of music, Benny realises perhaps things are not as scary as they seem.
