World Book Day – Thursday 7 March 2019
To celebrate World Book Day 2019, our staff will be dressing up as iconic book characters to raise funds for Book Aid International, a charity that provides books to schools in sub-Saharan Africa. Staff have, in many cases, put a lot of time and effort into their costumes to make this year’s World Book Day memorable.
This year students have also been invited to don their favourite book character costume and make a gold coin contribution to the charity. However, it must be stressed that this is NOT an ‘Own Clothes’ Day.
It is true that there are book characters that wear jeans and tracksuits, but the purpose of World Book Day is to celebrate a love of literature. Therefore, if a student in not in costume, but merely their own clothes,they will be sent home to change into their regular school uniform.
