Staff and students at Liskeard School and Community College celebrated World Book Day this year in spectacular style. Staff and students in Year 7 were encouraged to dress as their favourite literary character to mark the occasion and to celebrate the power of books and the wonderful world of reading.

The effort by all concerned was superb with costumes ranging from Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, The Hunger Games and classic characters from Charles Dickens. There was even a special appearance by Head Teacher Alex Lingard as Roald Dahl’s The Big Friendly Giant!

Prizes were due to be awarded for the best costumes and the best department effort but as the costumes on display were so good, with everyone entering into the spirit, it was decided Team Liskeard would share the win!

Literacy and reading is important to Liskeard School and the World Book Day celebrations were just one part of developing a reading culture across the school and promoting literacy as not just important for exams, but as a vital component of life.

Deputy Head Teacher James O’Connell said, “It’s great to do something different for a day and to see staff and students really entering into the spirit.  We’re really exciting to be working on a number of new literacy and reading projects at the moment and promoting reading is one of our key focuses within the school.”
