St Dominic’s Priory School Pupils Celebrate World Book Day

World-Book-DayStaff and students from St Dominic’s Priory School, Stone, had a fantastic day celebrating the 17th UNESCO designated World Book Day on Thursday 6th March. The day recognises and commemorates all things literary; from authors and illustrators, to the act of reading itself.
Competition was fierce in the fancy-dress competition as the children made a huge effort to create their wonderful outfits. The Prep Department chose a Roald Dahl theme, which produced some very convincing representations of the BFG, Matilda, The Witches, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr Fox.
Throughout the day pupils could be seen reading certificates placed on classroom doors by members of staff which explained why their favourite book was important to them.
