World Book Day 2019

The library was buzzing for World Book Day with bookish activities for both students and staff. Library classes had a competitive edge as students took part in the World Book Day table quiz and lunchtime activities included Blind Date With A Book and Match the Selfie to the Shelfie. We also had a gallery of book reviews by the TY Philosophers on display and staff got involved in Bring A Book Buy A Book in aid of St Michael’s house. Sincere thanks to all the students and staff who helped to make the day such a success.

Students and staff had a tough task in matching the Selfie to the Shelfie with just one group guessing all 14 matches! You can tell a lot about a person from what’s on their bookshelf so we got to know the OLS teachers a little better today.

Our ‘Blind Date with a Book’ was a huge success, as evidenced by the before and after pictures above! There was great excitement as students selected and unwrapped their books, discovering exciting new reads they may not have otherwise come across.

Our TY Philosophers considered why reading matters, making collaborative visual thinking displays on the significance of the books they read.
