World Book Day

Posted by on Mar 12, 2013 in News | No Comments

On Thursday 7th March, staff at dressed up as famous literary characters in support of World Book Day. Over 30 members of teaching and support staff took part, with imaginative costumes ranging from Tintin to Alice in Wonderland. It is always an important message to give our students that reading is not only an important skill to learn but also something that can be fun too! However, we are all still wondering which book Mr Roberts came from… 🙂

Huge thanks goes to School Librarian, Mrs Madigan, who organised a range of activities throughout the day including a literature and general knowledge quiz held at lunchtime. The English Department reigned supreme, beating the closest student team by only half a point! Better luck next time, chaps! There were also themed word searches, crosswords and puzzles available for classes throughout the day.
