World Book Day 2022

Senior School
4 Mar 22

This week, we celebrated World Book Day in the library by having two talented members of staff read to the First and Second Forms.

On Tuesday, Uncle Montague’s Tales of Terror was dramatically brought to life by Mrs Ball. With the lights dimmed in the library, it was the perfect setting for a spooky story. The students were riveted, as were the staff members who attended.

On Thursday, Mrs Westlake read from Jurassic Park, The BFG and The Giant Jam Sandwich. Jurassic Park was intense and very descriptive, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. The Giant Jam Sandwich was a younger children’s book, which made everyone smile. Students were also treated to lemonade and cake before they left, a good way to finish off an interesting lunchtime.

There was also a World Book Day quiz for students to complete on Thursday and every student that participated won a prize. All students did incredibly well and thoroughly enjoyed taking part, finding the relevant books on the shelves and looking for the answer in the books.

The winners, answering all the questions correctly were Ella Barr, Clementine Bennett, Henry Birkett, Phoebe Cowburn, Dominic Powell, George Simpson (all First Form), Desiree Banwo (Second Form), Sienna Lear-Gill, Elyse Ratcliffe, Emily Slipper (all Fourth Form), Isaac Forknall and Struben Savage (both Lower Sixth). The runners-up, who also did incredibly well, were Charlie Marsh, Leo Travis, Iwenose Victor-Obilahi and Mia Walpole (all First Form).

Congratulations to all those who took part.
