World Book Day
On Thursday the 2nd March the college was taken over by a number of Roald Dahl characters as well as: a group of pirates, a genie, Sherlock Holmes, an 'invisible man', cats in hats and Dracula (herself!); to name but a few of the book characters roaming around the school! The students were very impressed with the efforts the teachers made to display their love of reading.
In addition to the fancy dress, lots of hard work went into transforming classroom doors into the covers of our most loved books.
Festivities began during registration when tutors shared the opening of Dahl's 'Lamb to the Slaughter' a suspenseful tale that was delivered in instalments across lessons until lunch. If you haven't read this one I strongly recommend it!
The fun spilled over into lunch when our book swap took over the English Rubicon. Students engaged in interesting discussion over the books and deliberated over the ones to take home. They were guided in their decisions by Llewelyn Woodman, a year 12 literature student.
Lunch also brought the sale of year 7's literature inspired 'Bake Off' delights where all the money raised went to charity.
The passion and creativity displayed by all was infectious; well done to all staff and students for making it a memorable day. I can't wait for next year's celebrations now.
