World Book Day celebrations

Plans for Fyling Hall’s World Book Day celebrations are underway. With so many of our students out at Eskdale Festival, we thought it only fair to postpone our World Book Day to Friday, 6th March to ensure that all of our students (and staff) can participate.

Students and staff are invited to come to school on the 6th dressed as a character from a book and are asking for a £1 donation or a £2 donation from students (and staff) who would rather just come in non-uniform. A part of the money raised will go towards some new books, but the bulk of it will be put towards our new kitchen. There will be prizes for the best costumes too!

Additionally, we ask students to submit pictures of themselves reading in unusual places: in cupboards, in trees or snowboarding down a mountain – wherever they can think of! These will be compiled and put into a video montage to be shown at our 2020 Fyling Hall World Book Day celebrations.
