World Book Day celebrated in style at Castle Newnham

World Book Day
World Book Day 2020 at Castle Newnham

Pupils and staff at Castle Newnham School celebrated World Book Day in style this week dressing up as their favourite characters and sharing their favourite books.

The classrooms were filled with gaggles of Gangsta Grannies and hundreds of Harry Potters not to mention Matlidas, Wallies, superheroes and sporting stars.

Even the teachers took part, with Mr Balmbra, Head of Primary, dressing up as fictional pilot, Biggles.

Principal Ruth Wilkes said, “We fully support the importance of World Book Day and this is a great opportunity for the whole school to appreciate the world of books and the characters that they create.

“We also enjoy the fun of dressing up.”
