Dear Parent / Guardian,
Thursday the 3rd of March is World Book Day 2016.
As a school, we believe reading for pleasure is essential. Therefore, we will be organising several activities to celebrate this day.
Whole-school activities for World Book Day will be as follows:
We are asking the children to come into school dressed as their favourite book character - staff will also be participating! Children are asked to bring in 50p which will go towards Book Aid International.
Ideas for dressing up can be found at the following website:
We would like all children to participate in the school book swap by bringing in a book they have read and would like to swap it for another.
World Book Day Book Tokens
Thanks to National Book Tokens and lots of lovely book publishers and booksellers, each child will receive a £1 World Book Day token. This token can be taken to their local bookshop and swap it for one of ten £1 World Book Day books. The token can also be used to get £1 off any full-price book instead!
The World Book Day Book Tokens are valid from Monday 29th February 2016 - Sunday 27th March 2016.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Coyne and Mrs James
The Divine Mercy R.C Primary School.
