On Thursday 3rd March, the UK will celebrate World Book Day: a charity event organised by UNESCO to promote the enjoyment of books and reading, particularly amongst children living in countries with relatively low literacy rates.
As you know, we take reading very seriously at LAB; our students read for over 30 minutes each day in their lessons, and are expected to read for 30 minutes at home each night. To celebrate World Book Day in style, therefore, on the 3rd March we would like to invite students to dress up as a favourite literary character, for a donation of £1 to UNESCO – this can be donated via parent pay.
We would ask that, true to the spirit of the day, students do not wear a costume representative of a character from film or TV, but rather a literary text.
During the day, there will be a range of other activities to celebrate the event.
Please note that students who have PE on this day will be required to bring in and wear their PE kit as usual.
If you have any questions regarding World Book Day, please do not hesitate to contact us.
