World Book Day celebrations

Despite World Book Day being postponed for a week, Hove Park celebrated books in a number of ways. Tutor groups were asked to select their favourite book and then decorate their door to reflect this. A ‘Book Buffet’ event was held in Valley library at lunch time. 36 students in years 7,8 and 9 chatted about books that have made an impression on them whilst sharing lunch. Each student in years 7-9 was given a WBD £1 token and were able to exchange it for one of the special WBD books in the library or at their local book shop. Other activities included a ‘Match the Selfie to the Shelfie’ competition, a ‘Book in a Jar’ competition and book related quizzes. Prizes were awarded to winning entries.
