World Book Day on 1st March now seems quite a time away. For only the second year the school and the library celebrated this annual event. This year’s event took the form of a Share-a-story day (idea came from the forum School Librarian’s Network). At the beginning of each period S1 and S2 pupils were read extracts from the short story The Hitchhiker by Anthony Horowitz culminating in the the [mostly] unexpected ending during the last period of the day. There was a buzz about the school with both pupils and staff discussing how the story might end as well as the anticipation of what was going to happen next.
During lunchtime, pupils gathered in the library to share extracts from their favourite books and partake of a few snacks and a cuppa. It was a relaxed informal session enjoyed by those who attended.
