World Book Day 2024

Article Thumbnail Image

It's World Book Day, a chance to celebrate books and share our love of reading. The the theme for World Book Day 2024 is "Reading Your Way"--a theme that calls on everyone to let go of pressure and expectations, giving children a choice--and chance--to enjoy reading. To celebrate this, our staff dressed up as some of the most beloved characters in literature...and the dictionary!

We want all of our students to share the love of reading and have made sure that we allow time during the school week for students to read a book of their choice, as well as create opportunities to try books they may not have picked for otherwise. We encourage all families to read together and to make reading fun!

Our school library has thousands of books that are updated regularly with the best new titles. Miss Punter, our school librarian, and her team of student library assistants have picked out their favourite books that they'd recommend to other young people. If you're looking for a great new book to see sink into this weekend, why not try one of these or check out our KS3 Reading List.
