On Friday 6th March, staff and students at Pentrehafod celebrated World Book Day, a nationwide campaign to help change children’s lives by making story-sharing a habit and creating readers for life.
Sadly, statistics suggest that reading for pleasure is in decline, so we wanted to do our bit to try and give it a boost, raise awareness and spark millions of imaginations. One way in which we did this was by encouraging students to exchange a voucher for one of many books that were on offer in the ‘pop up’ bookshop in the school’s library. Many staff also got into the World Book Day spirit by dressing up as their favourite childhood literary characters.
