World Book Day

Wales High School Celebrate World Book Day!

 On Thursday 2nd March, Wales High School celebrated World Book Day in style, with staff dressing up as famous characters from literature and each tutor group decorating a door to resemble the cover of a well-loved book.

In a hard-fought competition, the PE department and Music department were joint winners for best-dressed department, and the winner of the doors was a Peter-Pan themed door in Learning Support.  The Great Big Book Swap took place in the Grand Hall, with students sharing their favourite reads.

Victoria Bolton, Leader of Literacy at Wales High School, said, “a love of reading is critical to the success of our students but, more importantly, at Wales High School we promote reading as part of a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.  World Book Day has been a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this whole-school ethos, but engaging our students in reading is an ongoing passion.”
