Image result for world book day 2018 logo

The Primary 7 classes are leading this year’s World Book Day celebrations. They are raising money for their residential trip in June therefore any money raised on the day will go to them. Please join in to support the P7s in their venture!

The theme is ‘Share a Story’ and what better way to share a story than chilling in your PJs with a hot cup of cocoa! Pupils and staff will be asked to bring a £1 for dressing up in pyjamas (or onesies)!

There will be activities during the school hours for the pupils and staff and we will also be extending an invite to family members to our community World Book Day Cafe! 

Our WBD Cafe will be open on Thursday 1st March from 1:45-2:45pm.  Please come along to relax by having tea, coffee or hot chocolate and a taste of something delicious (at very reasonable prices).  Within the cafe we will have a cosy and comfortable area for you to sit and share a book with your child.

We are really looking forward to this event and hope that you can come to hang out with us. More event details will follow in due course.

CAFE DRESS CODE – Pyjamas (optional) 😀
