December 2012: Characters come to school for World Book Day

GANDALF, Where’s Wally and Darth Vader were just a few of the unusual characters who came to school to celebrate World Book Day.

Head of English Miss Marsland said: “Staff and students got to dress up as a literary character and we had a ‘drop everything’ reading session for 20 minutes during period 2 when the whole school was reading.”

Money raised from the day, about £800, was donated to the library to buy some new books.
