To celebrate this year’s World Book Day and highlight the importance of reading Oriel High School in Maidenbower, put on a fantastic dressing up experience with a competition. 60 staff members dressed as book characters and the students had to find and identify the staff and the character. Prizes were awarded to the winners. There was a huge buzz around the school and it was a day of colour and laughter with lots of lovely conversations around books as students asked about various costumes.
Headteacher Philip Stack said “It was a fantastic event and a real celebration of books and the joy of reading and clearly captured the interest of our students. It is important to note that it was also a true celebration of the teamwork and camaraderie that is such a strong feature of the school”.
