A school celebrated World Book Day with a ‘Where’s Wally’ theme.

Students at The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, Somerset dressed up like Wally in red and white clothes, and some teachers did too.

Five teachers were the real Wally, and students went on a hunt to find them and get a golden ticket. If they found them, they were then placed in the raffle to have a chance of winning a prize. 

Miss Groves said: “We’re really pleased with everyone’sparticipation. So many staff and students across all year groups got involved with dressing up or finding the Wallys!”

A very exciting event also took place that day – the Book Fayre!

During lunch and break time, students were welcome to go to the conference room and collect a free book.

After school, all students and parents were also invited to collect a book. The whole room was filled with books of almost every genre. 

“The book fair was a huge success and it was great to see so many students taking books with other family members in mind” – Miss Groves. 

World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading.

The first World Book Day in the UK and Ireland was held in 1997 as a way to encourage children to discover and experience the pleasure of reading books. Over 100 countries celebrate World Book Day worldwide today!

TKASA takes pride in continuing this important event and celebration of reading.
