World Book Day is quite easily one of the children’s favourite time of year in Le Chéile, as we celebrate World Book Day, a global event now marked in over 100 countries worldwide. Some students dressed up as their favourite book characters as part of the celebrations. There was real excitement and energy throughout the school as children participated in a variety of different activities designed to celebrate books, authors, illustrators, and reading. Children took part in paired reading session between classes, which enabled younger and older readers to unite to share their favourite books together. However, without a doubt the most talked about subject was how the children would use their precious book tokens at the School Book Fair.
The parent-led Book Fair Committee, worked tirelessly to transform the school assembly hall into a hub for all book lovers. With over 200 children’s books to choose from the PTA organized fundraiser delivered on children classics like Roald Dahl to superhero’s and magical adventures. The event is a huge hit across all the ages and money raised will go towards further developing reading literature in both the classroom and school libraries. We just love books!
