‘World Book Day’ Celebrations in the English Department

download

There was a focus on the pleasure of reading in school last week, as Trinity pupils celebrated ‘World Book Day’ while in the English Department.

S1 pupils enjoyed a ‘speed dating’ novel challenge, hosted by our Librarian John Clarkson. This gave pupils the opportunity to promote a much–loved book to their peers, who then voted on whether they were convinced to read the text (or not!)

Furthermore, the English Department and Library were delighted to receive 200 novels specially produced for ‘World Book Day’ by a host of successful authors. Pupils were invited to take copies home and there was a huge uptake, with Mr Clarkson reporting that all 200 books were gone by the end of the day!

This year’s selection of texts to choose from were:

·       Jeff Kinney, ‘Diary of Greg Heffley’s Best Friend’

·       Malorie Blackman, ‘Nought Forever’

·       Frank Cottrell Boyce, ‘The Great Rocket Robbery’
