The Bulmershe School Celebrates World Book Day
On Thursday 2nd of March, The Bulmershe School proudly celebrated World Book Day with the unveiling of the Study Support Zone, a raffle and cake competition, and various other festivities. The celebration was intended to highlight the joys of reading, as well as to draw attention to the importance of literacy in young people.
A lively event was expected, but none of us anticipated the enthusiasm and excitement that came with it. There’s very little doubt in our minds that the abundance of cake on offer as part of a sale and competition had something to do with this, and the school would like to wish a big thank you for the generous donation of a personalised cake from Sangeetha Krishna of Sponge Surprise (you can contact her by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or on facebook). The cake competition itself was won by year seven duo Audrey Hucker and Erin-Kate Swart who created a wonderful cake inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
Teachers offered up their favourite books as part of a competition that saw the students try to collect as many book names from teachers as possible with the prize being won by by Daniella Serwaa-Bonsu. Some teachers also took it upon themselves to dress as their favourite characters as part of a friendly (supposedly) competition. This was won by Mrs. Cousins, who came dressed as an Oompa Loompa, complete with a green wig and orange face paint!
The book sale was also very popular and we would like to thank all of the students and parents who donated towards our sale with the donation of their books. The English Department had great fun selling the books and recommending ‘good reads’.
Overall, it was a fun and engaging day for the students to enjoy, and it offered teachers an invaluable opportunity to convey the great pleasure and enrichening that can come from reading. Raising £100 for the study support zone was an added bonus, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!
