This year World Book Day falls on Thursday 4th March.  This event is designed to bring people together in their love of books, stories and all things pertaining to reading.  At Loreto we have always celebrated this special day with author visits, competitions and events aimed at raising money for charities connected with literacy.  Although this year there are limits on how much we can do, we still want to encourage our students to pick up a book and to share with others what they have been reading – indeed, the theme for this year’s World Book Day is “share a story”.  Sharing a story can be done in many ways, such as chatting about it with a family member or a friend, or writing a formal review of a book which has really struck a chord. During the first lockdown, 60% of respondents to a WBD survey said that they were reading more than ever: we hope that the same is true of the current lockdown, and that our students will still celebrate this year’s World Book Day with their usual enthusiasm!
