World Book Day #ShareAStory

“World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.”

World Book Day will take place on 1st March with its aim of encouraging young people to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. Be sure to remind your child to pick up a free book next week Thursday in the school library!

 

A fun way you can get involved this year is the #ShareAStory campaign. World Book Day invites you to join this fun nationwide social event to enjoy the pleasures of reading and Share a story on World Book Day… and everyday. Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with young people can make a crucial difference to their outcome and it’s fun for all involved. You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime.

 

St. Paul’s will be celebrating by holding book competitions and giving students the opportunity to take part in various writing and reading related activities.
