World Book Day 2016

World Book Day 2016

In spite of a hectically busy week, we had a fantastic World Book Day here at SS Peter and Paul JNS! The whole school fell silent after little break, as the boys and girls stuck their noses firmly into their favourite books for Drop Everything And Read. It was a real pleasure to walk around the school class after class full of bent heads, as the children engrossed themselves in their reading.

Some classes accepted the challenges of the on-line World Book Day Quiz, whilst others got creative with our 1916 themed Story Writing Competition. Our finalists are: Anna Guba (Room 6); Noah Lyons (Room 3); Jamie Bullivant (Room 4); Matthew Stuart (Room2); and Isabella Gaughan (Room 10). Our overall winner will be declared at the end of the week, so watch this space!

But undoubtedly the highlight of World Book Day was the sight of so many of the children dressed up in wonderful costumes as their favourite book characters. Many thanks to the family members who clearly put in so much work on these! It was extremely difficult for the teachers to choose a winner from each class, and even more difficult for Mrs. Frayne, Mrs. Bouzzah, Mrs. Adderly and Ms. UaConaill to choose the top three, but congratulations to:
1st Place – Rachel, as Betty O’Barley
2nd Place – Hannah, as the Queen of Hearts
3rd Place – Wiktor, as his favourite dinosaur from The Dinosaur Book

Our runners up were: Mia Casey, as Medusa; Caoilte Duff, as Captain Underpants; Sam Jackson, as Dr. Noel; Sadiya Alabi, as Cat; Dylan Stuart, as The Wimpy Kid; Brooke O’Hanlon, as Stampy Cat; Grace Allen, as Gangsta Granny; Rian Dunne, as Dr. Noel; Daisy Casey, as Little Red Riding Hood; Honzi Dobysek, as Asterix; Daniel Smith, as Mr. Bump; Wictoria Brys, as Hedwig; and Amie McCafferty, as Betty O’Barley.
