World Book Day 2022

March 7th, 2022 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Events | News - (0 Comments)
Last week we celebrated and raised money for World Book Day ๐Ÿ“šThere were some excellent costumes across the school, from a tiny Elmer the Elephant in Reception, all the way to Mr Scottโ€™s William Shakespeare. Professional book illustrator, Lydia Christine, came in and did a โ€˜zineโ€™ workshop with Years 5 and 6, where students created their own illustrated characters and stories. The book in a box competition was a great success with over 40 entries and with so much effort and attention to detail, the judging was very difficult! In the end many special commendations were given out, as well as the main prizes, as the creativity and execution was excellent. Well done everyone โญ
