School’s costume drama
Pupils and staff at Tollbrae Primary dressed to impress for World Book Day.
Youngsters at the Airdrie school celebrated the special event by donning the costumes of their favourite literary characters and taking part in a series of challenges.
They took part in a character hunt, seeking 14 book favourites around the school, and welcomed“mystery readers”from the school staff to share extracts from favourite books and introduce new titles to their class libraries.
Pupils also had the chance to exchange their World Book Day tokens for one of 10 titles on offer from a pop-up Waterstones stall, run by visiting staff from the bookstore’s branch at Glasgow Fort – as well as entering a contest to design next year’s book day voucher.
Acting principal teacher Craig Bissett said:“It was a really wonderful day – we wanted to celebrate everything to do with reading and raise the profile of reaching, which was most important for us.
“The pupils’costumes were absolutely fabulous, and it’s definitely something we’d like to repeat next year.”
