Grateley students dress to impress for World Book Day

Grateley House School celebrated World Book Day in style with students dressing up as characters from their favourite books.

Students made a fantastic effort with their costumes, covering everything from modern young adult fiction such as the Mortal Engines series, to classics such as James Bond, Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast and Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

World Book Day is a fantastic event celebrating the important relationship of literature with young people and promoting reading, a hobby that is not only relaxing and pleasurable but also incredibly beneficial.

Sharing favourite books and discussing characters and stories are all ways GHS students work on developing their empathy skills.

Students also participated in a book exchange, swapping books and holding a raffle to raise money for a new set, which was voted for by the students themselves.

Daniel, a Year-11 student, said the day was “absolutely brilliant”, adding you can “immerse yourself in another world”.
