World Book Day

World Book Day – 03 March 2022

World Book Day took place on the 03 March 2022.

We celebrated the 25th anniversary of World Book Day this year at Cluny Library. All students were given their €1.50 book tokens to spend on their favorite books or to avail of some of the special free titles for this years annual event.

We were visited by the Cluny Book Fairy who hid some books around the school. Students were tasked with finding these books. Whoever found them was allowed to keep them! Well done to all who took part in the book hunt and happy reading!

A themed reading display was put together with a selection of recommended titles for all reading levels and interests. This display featured beloved stories including One by Sarah Crossan, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne and Northern Lights by Philip Pullman.

There was also a special World Book Day themed Kahoot quiz that all classes were invited to participate in.

In the afternoon, we did a Drop Everything and Read. Every year group and class took 20 minutes to read whatever they wanted for fun. Class groups read a wide variety of texts. It was wonderful to see so many students and staff taking part in this event and finding some time to read for fun!

Thank you to everyone who took part and to the TY library committee who helped inform class groups of our events. We are looking forward to our next book day!
