World Book Day 2019

World Book Day has taken place across the whole foundation at Kirkham Grammar SchoolAt 8.30am this morning, a number of Senior School pupils joined in a collective reading session while enjoying hot chocolate and pastries, while over at the Junior, Infant and Pre-School, pupils came to school dressed as their favourite book character. Everyone looked amazing! During the first 10 minutes of each period, our First, Second and Third Year pupils read a short story, Button Button by Richard Matheson. The story had been split into five parts so that by the end of Period 5 they would have read the whole story! A 'decorated door' and 'book character' competition also took place with pupils asked to track down different book characters (staff members) from around school and a prize awarded to the pupil who identified them all. The judging of our 'decorated doors' competition took place just before lunch and the standard was exceptionally high, making it a tough decision for Kirkham Grammar School Headmaster, Mr Berry. The winners will be announced after the House Music Festival Final tomorrow.
