World Book Day

World Book Day
We celebrated World Book Day on Friday the 6th of March last.  The pupils from senior classes were paired with the children from the junior classes and each read a book of their younger counterpart’s choice. 
To add to the occasion all children were invited to dress as a character of their choosing. It turned out to be a very colorful and inspiring experience for the whole school.
