World Book Day celebrations across Truro School

World Book Day is being celebrated across Truro School today with the usual dressing up and some quirkier ideas.

Around the senior school, staff have been displaying ‘Bookstagram’ posters with the front cover and a snippet about the book they’re currently reading. Everything from fiction, to auto-biographies and well-being books, helping to recommend a good read and to promote reading across the ages. Behind the idea was English teacher, Jasmine Husband.

Along the busy hallways, the Amnesty group have been behind the new posters displaying thought provoking quotes from inspirational authors and role models over time. Jenny Douce, an Amnesty member and Lower Sixth student explained the idea behind them: ‘We had a good response from the climate change placards in this area so we stuck with it. We wanted a simple, quick, effective way to promote the (amnesty) group, who we are, and what we are about, and to encourage sign up particularly from the 5th Year-Upper Sixth students.

Meanwhile at the prep, children paraded their fabulous costumes in assembly with characters such as ‘Boy in the dress’, ‘Alice in Wonderland’, ‘The Tiger who came to tea’ and even Jesus from the Bible arrived… Teachers joined with Head of Prep Sarah Patterson coming as ‘Cat in the Hat’, and others as ‘Demon Headmaster’, ‘The Snow Queen’, and ‘Pippi Longstocking’ to name just a few!
