On 23 April, more than 100 countries worldwide celebrate World Book Day. To encourage students to read for pleasure in and out of school, alone or with family and friends, we dedicated some time to celebrating in our school as well. Students from 6m delved into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl. Meanwhile, 7m students researched books that represent their various cultures. And students from 8m and 8i discussed the everlasting importance of Animal Farm by George Orwell. As the World Book Day organisation says: “Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.” Therefore, we encourage you to join our celebration by borrowing or buying a book and dedicate some of your time to reading for pleasure, especially outside in the wonderful days that are upon us.
