On Thursday 7th March, Liskeard School and Community College challenged staff and students to come into school dressed as their favourite literary character to celebrate World Book Day. This resulted in some amazing outfits: from Gangsta Granny to Mary Poppins! Certainly a favourite for the students were characters from books by Roald Dahl and David Walliams. Well done to all those who took part - everyone dressing up earned some precious house points.

The best costumes were judged to be:

1 - Ben Crocker - The Boy in a Dress by David Walliams - Pegasus

2 - Luisa Gould - Mary Poppins by P L Travers - Pegasus

3 - Lily and Isobel Colefax -The Witches by Roald Dahl - Centaur 

If that wasn't enough, every tutor group was challenged to decorate their classroom door as a book cover. There were over 30 entries and some were simply wonderful.

And to top it all off Liskeard School raised almost £500 towards new books for the library!

English teacher, Dr Shilling said "World Book Day is a fun way of promoting the importance of reading to everyone.  It's a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the joys that reading can bring: the doors showed how we can be transported to the scary environment of a dinosaur riddled world or through into a magical world where anything can and does happen."
