World Book Day

Posted: 6th March 2023

Thursday 2nd March was World Book Day. Here at Cobham Hall, students and staff celebrated by taking the opportunity to dress to impress with a book character costume.

It was lovely to see everyone getting involved in the event and helping raise money for Book Aid. We were treated to a fantastic selection of creative costumes, including characters from SpongeBob, Alice in Wonderland Mr Men and Little Miss, Great Expectations, and many more.

Along with donning amazing costumes, our students got creative and decorated the doors in T-Block, treating us to a fantastic selection of bright and imaginative displays.

With only one hour between selecting their book and completing their designs, our students certainly demonstrated collaboration, communication, organisation, and time management. Congratulations, the doors all look incredible.

Although we couldn’t convince our minibus driver and resident historian Mr Fletcher to dress up, we did persuade him to put on his author’s hat and share this collection of his many published works with us. With another book coming out in April to add to this impressive range of titles, we can only congratulate Mr Fletcher and thank him for sharing them with us.

We would like to say thank you to everyone who helped to organise the event and to those who contributed by dressing up, decorating doors, and donating to Book Aid. It was a fantastic World Book Day celebration and everyone had a lovely time.
