At BIS Secondary, we too are joining in the celebration of World Book Day by sharing our love of reading throughout the day. All our students and teachers will come to school on World Book Day dressed up as their favourite character from their most beloved book. Our Library Leaders, and English Subject Ambassadors, have also shared their love of books by creating a literary treasure hunt and quiz to be enjoyed by all students during break and lunchtime on World Book Day. Also, our pop-up library will be in the Undercroft all day for students to come along and share in our newest books in the Curve, including all of the latest Man Booker and CILIP Carnegie award winners.
And, as part of NAE’s ‘One World, One Book’ reading initiative, all in our school community: students, parents, and teachers alike, are encouraged to come along to the Undercroft to check out a copy of ‘The Breadwinner’ by Deborah Ellis - a novel about courage acclaimed by Malala Yousafzai, the world's youngest Nobel Prize winner, as the one book she wishes ‘all students would read’. Students can also listen to the author, Deborah Ellis introducing her book, and connect with other famous authors, by logging in to NAE Global Library.
All can join in our celebration and appreciation of literature at home by sharing favourite books and characters, by sharing the reading experiences that have impacted their lives, and, most importantly, by sharing the pure pleasure of reading. Happy World Book Day to all.
