A belated World Book Day 2018 took place on Friday 16th March at Liskeard School & Community College, with students and staff enthusiastically taking part and wearing some fantastic costumes.

The day, which was rescheduled after the school was closed on the original date due to snow, was re-arranged and students and staff showed great enthusiasm for the day.

Funds were also raised for new library books, with £1 donations made by all in non-uniform.

Students in costume met in the New Hall at break time for the Best Costume competition, which was judged by Head of Years and Head Teacher Mr Lingard. House points were awarded for all in costume.

The staff and student winners, and their characters, are listed below:


  • Mr Aird (President Snow from The Hunger Games)
  • Ms Cox (Morticia from The Addams Family)
  • Ms Perez (Alice in Wonderland)


  • Adam Harford (Dr Watson from Sherlock Holmes)
  • Luisa Gould (Mad Hatter)
  • Lily Inger (Mad Hatter)
  • Freya Bevan (Queen of Hearts)
  • Rhys Carrington (Darth Vader)

Dr Shilling, English KS3 co-ordinator, was delighted with the day.

“World Book Day is a really important reminder of all the fun and memories that can be created through experiencing books.  The staff and students entered the spirit of the day fantastically with their creative approach to dressing up as characters; everyone who was involved in the planning and making of the costumes should be congratulated on their amazing efforts,” she said.

Headteacher, Alex Lingard, congratulated all who had been involved.

"It was great to see so many students and staff enter into the spirit of World Book Day, celebrating some of their favourite literary characters. The day was arranged to celebrate the joy of reading and to raise money to update our library. The joy and importance of reading was also celebrated by our recent House competition where students had to create a book review using only 140 characters. We had over 250 entries, with some of our youngest students producing the best reviews! Well done to all involved", he said.
