World Book Day: Thursday 1st March

This Thursday is World Book Day and students are busily preparing their costumes in readiness for the latest Inter House competition.
Each House has been allocated a different type of literature and students have been challenged to represent their House in the following areas:

Mayo – Classic Childrens literature
Hart – Wizards, Witches and Dragons
Sheldon – Comic Book/Graphic Novel characters
Badger – Gothic Ghosts and Ghouls

Staff will be involved too. Members of staff in each department (or group of departments) have been allocated an author with the aim of dressing up as a character from any of their books/works and students have to guest which author it is. The authors are:

Shakespeare
Lewis Carroll
J.K. Rowling
Charles Dickens
Ian Fleming and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Gothic
Comic Book Heroes
Roald Dahl

Once again students will be able to get involved in the very popular “Book Shelf competition” where members of staff photograph their bookshelves and students have to guess which member of staff the shelf belongs to.
It all promises to be a very lively and exciting day.
