This year, Glenthorne High School celebrated World Book Day with an entire week of exciting activities. Pupils voted for their favourite books, participated in literary quizzes and defended their favourite book during an intense round of Book Speed Dating. They also made their own World Book Day bookmarks, watched popular author Robert Muchamore conduct a live reading via a video stream and at 12:00 o’clock on the 6th of March, the entire school participated in “Drop Everything & Read.”
Of course, no World Book Day would be complete without students and staff dressing up as their favourite literary characters. This year we saw numerous different costumes, including: Dr. Who, The Cat in the Hat, Captain Hook, The Queen of Hearts, Cruella Deville, Holmes & Watson and many others! It was surreal, bumping into the Mad Hatter in the corridor and having lunch sitting next to Harry Potter!
