WORLD BOOK DAY – Thursday 6 March 2014
Celebrating books and reading on World Book Day and the rest of the year is the reason behind this popular day.
The nation was asked to nominate the 50 books that changed their lives, to create the ultimate list of books to help keep young people reading. The final list was announced by Children’s Laureate, Malorie Blackman in the run-up to World Book Day. This is available to download from worldbookday.com/writes-of-passage.
To celebrate our own World Book Day, students from all year groups (supported and helped by Sixth Formers) came together in the Library to compete in a Quiz devised by the English Dept. Questions were based on popular authors and books across all genres and challenged the students to recall and test their knowledge of books.
Students were also given £1 vouchers redeemable against a whole range of books.
