Priory School Pupils And Teachers Celebrate World Book Day In Style

Whippingham's Priory School has celebrated World Book Day in style today (Thursday).

Pupils and staff arrived at school dressed as their favourite book characters from A Christmas Carol, Willy Wonka, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Dracula, Rapunzel, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians and many more.

In the weeks leading up to the event, the school held a World Book Day assembly and published on its social media pages pictures of staff and their favourite reads.

To encourage reading for pleasure and to engender a lifelong love of reading, every lesson today, regardless of subject and pupil age, began with the class teacher reading several chapters from a carefully selected novel.

Mr DEJJ Lloyd, Principal, stated:

“Everyone had great fun dressing up, while enjoying the simple pleasure of beginning every lesson with the next few chapters from an age-appropriate book”.
