Today is World Book Day, and with reading being such an important part of life here at Cowley, we are enjoying being involved with today’s events.
World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Their mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.
We have various activities going on in college today, including our Year 7 & 8 students reading a book in a day and ‘The Masked Reader’.
A number of books have been made available for £1 for World Book Day and they are offering all secondary students a £1 book token to obtain those books for free or to get £1 off more expensive books. Please use the QR code (right) to download your token.
