World Book Day Wonders

Mar 8, 2024

The Prep School celebrate and enjoy wonderful children’s books every day of the year, but especially so on World Book Day. This year, pupils were challenged to dress up as a character that they either aspire to be or with whom they already identify for some reason. 

As is customary, pupils and staff paraded around the Mansion House displaying a wonderful array of imaginative costumes including ‘Susan the Gentle’ from Narnia, Pippi Longstocking, Anne of Green Gables, Hal from Adventures on Trains, Professor McGonagall, Sherlock Holmes, Éowyn from Lord of The Rings and many more. 

Back in classrooms, pupils completed written explanations for their choices consistently mentioning, above all else, their aspirations to be as brave, kind and adventurous as their character of choice.

Following the parade, the whole Prep School gathered to share a book called Journey by Aaron Becker. Through the text, the children began to release their imaginations and explore the worlds in which they wish to live.
