West Lakes Academy students and staff celebrated the 22nd annual World Book Day which celebrates reading, authors and books.
Staff at the Egremont academy came together to read Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven, which was recorded, split into sections and then screened to students at the start of each lesson. The academy also held a book fair and a book hunt for students.
Miss Mariannou commented, “World Book Day is such a valuable celebration in our school, as it encourages students to appreciate the importance of reading. Our World Book Day activities create a buzz about books, so students can see the fun and enjoyment that reading brings, and hopefully pick up a book themselves! From the Book Fair to our whole school Book Hunt, students and staff have seen the happiness that reading can bring to our lives.”
