World Book Day

World Book Day was held on Thursday 5th March 2020. The day is an annual event organised by the World Book Day Charity, and its mission is to provide every child and young person a book of their own. The day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading.

At St Clement Danes School our librarians Mrs Gustafsson and Mrs Murray organised a day full of activities to celebrate the day. Various competitions were held including a 'Book Cover Treasure Hunt', where students searched the school to find book cover pictures, a ‘Build a Book Tower’ competition, a ‘Guess the Teacher’ competition and ‘The Big Book Quiz’.  

The English Faculty staff also took an active part in the day, joining in the spirit of the day dressed up as their favourite book characters!

There was also a tremendous response to the Staff World Book Day Quiz across all faculties and departments. Library staff said that the competition was very close and congratulations go to the winners- Visitor Reception!

Thank you to Mrs Gustafsson and Mrs Murray for organising such a fun filled World Book Day at St Clement Danes School! The day was enjoyed by students and staff alike and the delicious prizes were also very much appreciated! (Please see the gallery below for photographs of the event).
