WORLD BOOK DAY

Whitelees Primary School is looking forward to celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day on the Friday 4th March 2022. This year the message for all children is ‘You are a Reader’ and we are creating a day filled with exciting, celebratory ways to promote reading for pleasure. For 2022 our theme is ‘Curl up with your Favourite Book’ and children will be invited to talk about their favourite book in their class.

At Whitelees, we are aware of reducing the cost of the school day so the children have several options to celebrate this day with no spending required. They can come into school wearing comfy clothes to curl up with their favourite book or they are welcome to dress up as someone or something from their favourite book.

We can not wait to celebrate World Book Day 2022 in style!
