Young and old take part in World Book Day activities

Rydal Penrhos’ senior school pupils took part in a host of different activities as part of a nationwide reading initiative.

All year groups involved themselves in the World Book Day festivities on Thursday, March 7, which began very early with a special Breakfast Reading Club session prior to the normal start of the school day.

A large number of Year 7, 8 and 9 came in before their scheduled start time to get in some early morning reading, and each year group also took part in some independent reading to heighten their creativity during lesson time.

Teaching staff brought in their favourite books to read to the pupils, and they also detailed what they liked about the book and why it has captured their hearts over time.

Unfortunately, a Poets’ Corner was cancelled on the Memorial Quad due to the adverse weather conditions.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “We are always delighted to show our support to very worthwhile events such as World Book Day, which stresses the importance that additional reading can have on a child’s overall development on a daily basis.

“This is something we are always actively encouraging here at Rydal Penrhos, and our teaching staff are always on hand to lend their expertise.”
