World Book Day

World Book Day was on Thursday 3rd March. Heston celebrated this through several fun events taking place throughout the day.

Firstly, there was the staff costume competition. This was won by Ms Macdonald and Mr Salcedo who dressed up as Lady Macbeth and Sherlock Holmes. Personally, I really liked Miss Dinkha’s Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter. Inside her room, she had several books laid out on top of red cloth, as well as four massive, remarkable swords from various fantasy novels.

For the students, a scavenger hunt was organised, with the goal of finding and writing down a teacher with a sticker, corresponding to a classic novel. Once all ten novels had been noted down, it could be handed into the library where they received a sweet treat, alongside an entry to a raffle. To accommodate this, the LRC was opened at break and lunch, and open to all year groups. This passion for reading, extended to lessons too with all teachers sharing their favourite childhood books.

Overall, this was a spectacular day, and will stand out in my memories, even well after I graduate.
