Despite the snow and freezing winds, St Mary’s Year 7 students marked World Book Day with workshops on the theme of Shakespeare’s Macbeth - with their teachers, Miss Rekhi and Mr Hardman, in costume as the central characters in this tragic play.
Year 7 students also wrote reviews of their favourite books, and needless to say J K Rowling’s Harry Potter series featured highly amongst the most popular. To add to the excitement of the day, Miss Delaney, Miss Clancy and Mr Harvey managed to bring a touch of Hogwarts to our corner of wintery Croydon.
All students across the school were issued with their special World Book Day book tokens by our librarian, Mrs Peart. Thanks to National Book Tokens and lots of publishers and booksellers, World Book Day, in partnership with schools all over the country, will be distributing more than 15 million £1 World Book Day book tokens to children and young people - that’s almost one for every child/young person under 18 in the UK and Ireland.
