Heroes and Heroines – World Book Day
On Friday 6 March, Highsted celebrated World Book Day with staff and students honouring the world of comic book and graphic novel characters by wearing costumes for the day to raise money for charity.
During the day, students showed their love of literature by attending school dressed in an incredible range of costumes. Student winners of the costume event were: Madison S (E4) as ‘Hela’ from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’; Maryam C (C2) as the ‘Mystery Machine’ from ‘Scooby Doo’; and Alycea W (F3) as ‘Beetlejuice’. The staff winners this year were: Mr Ware as ‘Wonder Woman’ and Mr Webb as ‘The Joker’ from ‘Batman’.
The school also took part in a sponsored reading event to raise money for ‘Readathon’, which raises money to provide mobile libraries and arranges for storytellers, famous authors and artists to visit hospitals and bring books to children staying in hospital long term. This year the sponsored read started on Friday 14 February and continued until Friday 6 March and the school managed to raise £89. This year’s top readers were: Faith D, Abigail H, Phoebe H and Abigail R, reading the most books during the sponsored read.
Also during the day, students had the opportunity to participate in a range of World Book Day themed activities such as the ‘Famous Literary Figures Quiz’ and designing a super-hero themed chocolate bar, and marketing campaign, as part of their studies in persuasive writing in English lessons.
This year the event was another great success and the total amount raised for charity was an amazing £500! Congratulations to all who made the event so successful.
