World Book Day Celebrations

Thursday 14th March 2013

Girls from across the school celebrated World Book Day through competitions, fancy dress and writing on Thursday 7 March.

The costumes were wonderful and varied, from seven dwarves, with hair doubling as fairy tale beards, to Alice in Wonderland and Willy Wonka, complete with golden tickets.

As part of World Book Day, Tim Bowler, prize-winning author of River Boy and Buried Thunder, visited to the school and talked to the 4s about writing and the importance of surprising yourself. His seminars, in which students had the chance to write and to discuss their work, were described as ‘wonderful’ and ‘great’. Two students even repeated the class over their lunch break.

Students also took part in a tutor group competition in the morning and colourful book recommendations by students had been posted in corridors all week.

Tim Bowler also congratulated the U4s, 4s and L4s on several superb short stories they had entered to a school competition. He met and signed books for the three overall winners.

We hope that World Book Day proved that literature is a central part of life at Queen Anne’s School.
