College Celebrates World Book Day
Staff and pupils have had a great time celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 2 March.
One of the English department and Library highlights of the year, it is always a great opportunity to share the joy of books. At break time the Library ran a ‘Book And A Biscuit’ session where the Library team handed out books and a biscuit and there were plenty of enthusiastic readers willing to give new and different genres a try.
After a busy day of lessons, the whole school community took part in a ‘Drop Everything And Read Challenge’. Pupils pulled out their favourites and settled down to read.
Of course, the book fun doesn’t stop there, as the College has a regular pupils’ book club that meets to swap stories and share news of their favourite authors alongside a custard cream. Then there is the Library’s Book of the Month, providing a regular insight into different authors for readers across the school community. Parents can even get in on the act by coming along to, Head of English, Mr Kerrigan’s Parents Reading Group that meets monthly in the library.
We know reading matters and we hope everyone enjoyed World Book Day.
