06 Mar World Book Day
What a brilliant day students had on Thursday 5th March, as the school celebrated World Book Day by holding an all-day reading marathon. Every 15 minutes throughout the day different students read to keep the marathon going. A stage was set up in Main Street with a tent, camping chairs, camp fire (mock of course) and other props.
This event is always very popular with students and encourages them to acknowledge ‘reading can be fun’.
Each student who took part received a certificate, book mark and credits.
Every student in school received a £1 book token to get a WBD book for FREE or £1 OFF a book costing £2.99 or more from local booksellers.
World Book Day is celebrated all over the world and not just by schools. Checkout the website www.worldbookday.com for news and events, competitions, quizzes, blogs, author on Twitter, books and lots more.
Many thanks to everyone.
