World Book Day Celebrations

Well done Lister for a fabulous celebration of World Book Day on Friday 2nd March! Despite the freezing weather conditions lots of people donned some fabulous book character outfits. The prize for the most terrifying definitely goes to Ms Connell, who donned a Dementor costume! Special mention should also go to Mr Ahmed for spending most of the day with his entire head bandaged to be the Invisible Man. An extended tutor time in which all tutor groups participated in our challenging book quiz got everyone talking about books – both ones they’ve read and ones to put on those ‘to read’ lists. Mr Hawkins, Mr Kristiansen and Mr Dos Santos inspired us over the tannoy by sharing their favourite books and how these changed their lives. Later on in the day Readathon participants and Library Prefects had a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party lunch to reward all their hard work – a lot of pizza and cake were consumed!

The amount of money raised for Book Aid International is to be confirmed. Book Aid’s website explains their mission and where the money will go: ‘Through reading, people can change their own lives for the better and shape their own futures. In places where books are scarce, libraries are often the best places for people to discover the joy of reading. By supporting libraries, we can provide access to books for around 29 million people each year. We work with UK publishers to supply brand new books to over 3,000 libraries. Every year, we send around one million brand new, carefully selected books each. Most of our work takes place in Africa but we also work in other locations where the need for books is great.’ To find out more about Book Aid International visit:
