World Book Day 2024

7th March 2024
On Thursday 7th March, GMS took an active delight in celebrating World Book Day. Whether it was dressing up in their favourite book character, attending one of the live streaming author events, or indeed, entering one of the many competitions that were on offer during lessons. Some of the children also showed a fair amount of determination when they entered our Readathon, which took place during the afternoon, raising funds for Read for Good’s hospital programme, providing the best brand-new books and resident storyteller visits for children in the 30 major children’s hospitals across the UK, from Belfast to Bangor, Truro to Aberdeen, Norwich to Newcastle. We were also really pleased to be joined by Wooler First School's Year 4. The final total raised will be approx £640 once we have in all of the sponsorship - watch this space! 
Winners of the costume prizes were: Scarlet, Alfie and Kaitlynn in Year 5; Macie P, Laura B and Holly R in Year 6 and Libby and Sophie B in Year 7.
Well done everyone. It was a super day; enjoyed by staff and pupils alike.
