Book Fever for World Book Day

Boys and staff embraced the opportunity to talk about reading and share a story or two for our annual World Book Day celebrations.

The build up to World Book Day started in early February at Davenies this year when our ‘Read for Good’ Readathon was launched. Boys were challenged to increase their reading in exchange for sponsorship. This book themed excitement continued with our Children’s Book Project Book Drive, which was very well supported. Finally, book fever reached a peak on World Book Day. Fabulously imaginative costumes representing book characters who inspire us were paraded at our school assemblies, by boys and staff alike. Prizes were enjoyed for the wonderful story jars that some boys created and all of the boys were thrilled to receive their World Book Day tokens.

Throughout the day were various book themed activities, including a story-themed treasure hunt, online author talks, bookmark making and lower and upper years getting together and reading to each other – always a favourite! A lot of fun was had on a very enjoyable World Book Day with the incredible bonus of delivering over 1,000 books to the Children’s Book Project and nearly £3,000 to Read for Good.  Thank you to all the boys, parents and staff who enthusiastically participated and helped us achieve another successful World Book Day!
