29th February 16
Upper and Lower School students and staff at KAS will celebrate World Book Day, Thursday 3 March, with a week of literary themed events and activities.
Jenny, Upper School Librarian, is hosting the first ever “KAS Shelfie Competition.” Staff submitted photographs of their bookshelves at home, which have been compiled into a quiz sheet. It is now up to students to analyse the bookshelves and try to figure out who each one belongs to. There are some clues hidden in the stacks to help students solve the shelfie puzzle!
Teachers will also be reading passages from their favourite books to students. Staff and students are invited to dress as their favourite character.
To celebrate World Book Day, the Lower School Library will host a Book Shop all week. Each child will receive a £1 voucher to spend on a book. The school receives a portion of the profits from sales at the Book Shop to spend on books for our library.
A Book Swap will take place as well. Students will bring in books of their own to trade with other children. Various fundraisers will be held to raise money for international book aid.
On World Book Day Thursday 3 March, all students (and most teachers, especially David) will come to school dressed up as their favourite character from a book.
Authors Candy Gourlay and Lorraine Carey will visit, Lower School students, along with Storyteller June Peters.
Lower School Librarian Cathy has put together a World Book Day pack for each class teacher.
Lower and Upper School staff and students are looking forward to celebrating World Book Day this week. We’ll post pictures of World Book Day on the KAS news blog as the week progresses.
